Geary explores the ghastliest and most famous murders of Victorian England. Geary has researched the subject extensively and presents, with his own inimitable tongue-in-cheek style, the Jack the Ripper mystery as told through a journal of a fascinated Englishman of the day. Both factual and darkly funny, Geary shines an ironic light on the repressive society that spawned such a monster and its hypocritical reaction to it.
"Geary's haunting drawings unite seamlessly with his moody, well-researched text."
