FIVE STARS: At last, the Ripper's victims get a voice... An eloquent, stirring challenge to reject the prevailing Ripper myth. -- Gwen Smith * Mail on Sunday * How fitting that in the year when we celebrate the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage, dignity is finally returned to these unfortunate women. * Professor Dame Sue Black, author of ALL THAT REMAINS * A Ripper narrative that gives voice to the women he silenced; I've been waiting for this book for years. Beautifully written and with the grip of a thriller, it will open your eyes and break your heart. * Erin Kelly, author of HE SAID/SHE SAID * What a brilliant and necessary book * Jo Baker, author of LONGBOURN * Devastatingly good. The Five will leave you in tears of pity and of rage. * LUCY WORSLEY *
