I, Ripper Stephen Hunter read online review & book description:

The electrifying new thriller from New York Times bestselling author Stephen Hunter takes you deep inside the mind of the most notorious serial killer of all time: Jack the Ripper.

In the fall of 1888, Jack the Ripper slaughtered five prostitutes in London’s seamy Whitechapel District. He did not just kill—he ripped with a butcher’s glee—and then, after the particularly gruesome slaying of Mary Jane Kelly, he disappeared. For 127 years, Jack has haunted the dark corners of our imagination, the paradigm of the psychotic killer. We remember him not only for his crimes, but because, despite one of the biggest dragnets in London history, he was never caught.

I, Ripper is a vivid reimagining of Jack’s personal story entwined with that of an Irish journalist who covered the case, knew the principals, charted the investigation, and at last, stymied, went off in a bold new direction. These two men stalk each other through a city twisted in fear of the madman’s blade, a cat-and-mouse game that brings to life the sounds and smells of the fleshpot tenderloin of Whitechapel and all the lurid acts that fueled the Ripper headlines.

Dripping with intrigue, atmosphere, and diabolical twists, this is a magnificent psychological thriller from perennial New York Times bestseller Stephen Hunter, who the San Francisco Examiner calls “one of the best storytellers of his generation.”

    Having read all of Mr. Hunter's books, I was not surprised. I was stricken by his genius. As in "The Third Bullet" he has taken a true crime story,which has been studied, researched and speculated upon, and, not only, giving a totally accurate and logical twist, but making it completely engrossing. I was initially put off a bit by the semi-florrid language, but once I got used to it, I moved right along. His descriptions of London neighborhoods and the people populating them, seemed to have come from someone who lived those times and walked those streets. I could almost smell the coal smoke and and horse dung. Mr. Hunter has always been an extremely good author. He has gotten better and more valuable with age. Like good whiskey.
