‘THE BEST WE CAN DO IS WONDER AND ENJOY BEING PUZZLED’

Light WorkBooks on Jack the Ripper can be hard work.  Authors have felt obliged to pack information around a chronological account of the murders.  Participants in the events appear and reappear leaving a reader confused.  Often an unconvincing suspect is identified.

Light Work is different and serious, but sometimes sardonic. The story or legend of Jack the Ripper is separated into self-contained topics.  The range within Light Work is wide and contains some surprises – London smog, music hall entertainers, Irish revolutionaries, female political radicals, a Texan serial killer, modern Jack the Ripper tours, and even a surreal visit to a lake filled with corpses.

‘Light Work’ offers a fresh, independent and common sense perspective on the events in Whitechapel in 1888.
