Product description

Review

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 Published On: 2019-02-10

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

Forests have been felled in the interests of unmasking the murderer, but until now no one has bothered to discover the identity of his victims.
The Five is thus an angry and important work of historical detection, calling time on the misogyny that has fed the Ripper myth. . . This is a powerful and a shaming book, but most shameful of all is that it took 130 years to write. -- Frances Wilson ― Guardian

By collating these five deeply affecting biographies ... Rubenhold has given these women the immortality that their murderer does not deserve. ―
Daily Mail

Stupendous. The sort of work that keeps history vital. ―
IMOGEN HERMES GOWAR, author of THE MERMAID AND MRS HANCOCK

Fascinating, compelling, moving,
The Five makes a fierce, passionate argument about the ethics of how we engage with murder. A brilliant,properly thoughtful, responsible piece of political writing. ― BRIDGET COLLINS, author of THE BINDING

‘Mary Ann Nichols, Annie Chapman, Elizabeth Stride, Catherine Eddowes, and Mary Jane Kelly deserve to be thought of as more than eviscerated bodies on an East London street. This haunting book does something to redress that balance. ―
Sunday Times

A highly readable work of rigorous scholarship that plunges the reader into the claustrophobic world of late 19th-century London... The story of these five women – Mary Ann “Polly” Nichols, Annie Chapman, Elizabeth Stride, Catherine Eddowes and Mary Jane Kelly – is not one of death, but one of life. -- Rebecca Rideal ―
NewStatesman

A
Sunday Times must-read. ― Sunday Times

Fascinating and hugely important book acts as a timely reminder of what happens when society ceases to care for its most vulnerable residents. ― Herald Scotland

This confidently written book gives a rich insight into the world of the wretched in the late Victorian period. Rubenhold writes in a compassionate but unsentimental style…Literary Review

An outstanding work of history-from-below … magnificent ―
The Spectator

Urges us to look beyond the familiar stories...
The Five challenges the accepted view of the five canonical victims of Jack the Ripper, and tells the untold stories of their lives. ― History Revealed Published On: 2019-04-01

THE FIVE has received deservedly rave reviews. It's gripping. ―
New York Times

A brilliant and important book that will reshape how this case is studied - anyone interested in social history or the history of crime owes a debt to
@HallieRubenholdEMMA FLINT

Becomes a passionate indictment of the true-crime genre, with its fixation on the minds of murderers and its shallow, glancing sympathy for the dead. Hard-edged and heartbreaking ―
Washington Post

Our fascination with true crime means we often focus on the perpertrator, such as Ted Bundy, rather than the victims. It's time to stop focusing on the killer and start remembering the victims: Polly, Annie, Catherine and Mary-Jane ―
Stylist
