Of all the serial killers whose gruesome deeds have splashed across headlines, few have reached the near-mythical status of Jack the Ripper. Terrorizing London with a sudden rash of violent murders in the fall of 1888, he then vanished, leaving generations to speculate upon his identity and whereabouts—and living on in some of the most spectacularly unnerving fiction and nonfiction ever written. This new anthology from Edgar Award winner Otto Penzler collects 41 tales featuring the Ripper, from classics by Marie Belloc-Lowndes, Robert Bloch, and Ellery Queen to never-before-seen stories by Jeffery Deaver, Loren D. Estleman, and Lyndsay Faye. Here too are essential true-crime artifacts of Ripper lore, including authentic witness statements, autopsy reports, contemporary news articles, and astonishing theories from the world's foremost Ripperologists.

"A monumental collection.... [The author] leaves no stone unturned."—Kirkus Reviews

"If there's some star around which the mystery world orbits, it might well be Otto Penzler, who is widely considered one of the world's foremost authorities on the genre."—LAReview of Books

"As with previous Big Books, Penzler's dogged research has enabled him to include undeservedly obscure stories.... High-quality tales original to this volume, from such 21st-century masters as Daniel Stashower, Lyndsay Faye, and Jeffery Deaver, are another bonus."—Publishers Weekly
