  • Amazon has a copy of TRMK dated 4th April 2016. Very confusing.

    • Isn't there a baker in the story somewhere?

      The Jack the Ripper Bake Off would sell like hot cakes, I reckon.

      • As he walks down the street
        To every girl he meets
        He says "Are you Mary Berry?"

          Did you see the Mary Berry WDYTYA? episode? She was delighted to discover that one of her ancestors had been a baker, but came down to earth with a bump when she discovered he made a fortune selling adulterated bread to the local workhouse.

          • Does that make her one of the GBBO alumni?

              That's shrewd, very shrewd.

                • Perhaps there will be an update in the future, rebranded as 'Jack the Ripper and His Influence on the Arts and Crafts Movement', or something similar.

                    I am looking forward to this book. I want to read more about the Michaelmas daisy fabric pattern that was mysteriously noted on Kate Eddowes' flounced skirt.

                    Any chance WWD & Patricia Cornwell could combine their efforts and make a new book once again naming Sickert as Jack?

                      Don't say it too loudly, Anna...they just might do that.

                        • I've checked both books' ISBN on Amazon's Look inside tab and it's the same (978-1-010536-09-4) except for the 2 last digits (-4 vs -04). A ISBN is permanently linked to the book title.

                          However, a ISBN lookup gave the following real ISBN results!

                          Jack The Ripper: A True Love Story (Paperback)
                          ISBN-13: 9781910536711
                          ISBN-10: 1910536717

                          The Real Mary Kelly (Hardcover)
                          ISBN-13: 9781910536094
                          ISBN-10: 1910536091

                          The Real Mary Kelly (Kindle e-book)
                          ASIN: B0144OBO2K


                          The Real Mary Kelly hardcover version has 300 pages and was published on August 3, 2015 and its Kindle edition was published on August 13, 2015. Jack The Ripper: A True Love Story (paperback) was published on July 14, 2016! This last version is a reprint edition which could have used the initial ISBN.

                          What seemingly happened is that either the author or the publisher didn't retreive the initially published book on Amazon to make minor syntax/grammatical/factual changes. All they had to do was use the "place title on hold" link which would have temporarely blocked the sales. In order to keep selling the old version, the choice they probably made was going for a new title and obtaining a new ISBN linked to the new title without Amazon being aware of it. Once published, Amazon's automated author link creation process came into action liking the 'same' book on its pages!

                          Now if you examine the comments on both Amazon pages, they're the same although each one has a different ranking score!

                          Respectfully,
                          Bernard

                              Lorena Bobbit would have a heyday. Sorry for the interruption, Pat.

                              • Strange that the spelling Elizabeth is crossed out and replaced by Elizebath.
