Historian Hallie Rubenhold tells five untold stories of the women killed by Jack the Ripper and presents a moving portrait of Victorian London.
Polly, Annie, Elizabeth, Catherine and Mary-Jane are famous for the same thing, though they never met. They came from Fleet Street, Knightsbridge, Wolverhampton, Sweden and Wales. They wrote ballads, ran coffee houses, lived on country estates, and breathed ink-dust from printing presses.
What they had in common was the year of their murders: 1888. Their murderer was never identified, but the name created for him by the press has become far more famous than any of these five women. Now, in this devastating narrative of five lives, Hallie finally sets the record straight and gives these women back their stories.
