The pages of The Diary of Jack the Ripper reveal the unimaginable--that more than a century ago, the legendary serial killer at work in London's Whitechapel kept a record of his bestial mutilations of women. The writer of the horrific journal is James Maybrick, a depraved, drug-taking, womanizing, 49-year-old Liverpool cotton merchant with a history of domestic violence. In this analysis of his diary, investigative author Shirley Harrison explains all about the origins of the text and the rigorous scientific analysis it has endured while revealing startling new information about Maybrick's shadowy background. This evidence, along with a chilling confession scratched into a watch--"I am Jack. J Maybrick," provide powerful justification that Maybrick was Jack the Ripper. The diary itself is reproduced in full, so that readers can judge whether these are the deeply distributing words of Jack the Ripper himself, reaching out from across the abyss of more than a century.… (mer)

A very intriguing read- I feel it brings about more questions. I feel it is his diary and shows James Maybrick was Jack the Ripper. It gave great historical insight into Florie being accused of murdering him which in acway would be ironic if she truly had. Good read if you are pulled into the Ripper mystery. ( )

This was a truly riveting essay. If only it had been true. I believe that there's still a chance that James Maybrick may have been Jack the Ripper even though the diary was a hoax. ( )

The subject matter and theory is interesting if you have the patience and time to sort out the rampant bias from the facts. Ms. Jackson's one-a-page, unsubstantiated claims (such as, "...which of course, must be false..." Oh really? Why must it? Is there evidence? Where is it?) can be quite maddening and the reader will be forgiven for having spent his/her time doing something else. It's the kind of read that, even if true (and that's a big if), it leaves one with far more questions than answers and additionally, a feeling of having tried unsuccessfully to eat a VERY sloppy joe.

But if you have the time and divinely inspired patience to sort the facts from the opinions, AND read additional works on the subject, then it presents an intriguing, if indulgent, idea. ( )

Boring, biased, and based on a hoax. ( )
