Jack the Ripper: open case

Jack el Destripador: caso abierto is the most comprehensive investigation work in spanish about the crimes that terrorized London’s Eat End in the fall of 1888.

Nowadays we know the profiles of these women that became victims of a double edged sword: the victorian society that marginalized them and turned them into pariahs, leaving them to suffer alcoholism, misery and forced prostitution; and the hand of a killer that used the gutters of that same society to murder them freely.

The work, winner of the VII Juan Antonio Cebrián Prize, dives into the crime scenes turning the spotlight on the suspects files, evidence, press report of the era, victims’ biographies, social context and the most recent investigations, turning the reader into a real detective.
