"Jack the Ripper: The Definitive History is not yet another attempt to identify the culprit. Instead, the book sets the murders in their historical context, examining in depth what East London was like in 1888, how it came to be that way, and how events led to one of the most infamous and grisly episodes of the Victorian era."--BOOK JACKET
Mary Celeste : the greatest mystery of the sea by Paul Begg ( Book )
11 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In 1872 the Mary Celeste, a seaworthy ship, well provisioned with food and fresh water, was found crewless and drifting at sea. Had the highly capable and experienced captain and crew abandoned ship in the middle of the Atlantic for no obvious reason? Were they the victims of a crime, and if so who were the criminals? The seemingly unaccountable disappearance of the crew from Mary Celeste is one of the greatest maritime and historical mysteries." "Within a few years the Mary Celeste became the stuff of legend, the true facts obscured by fictional details, most attributable to an early short story by Arthur Conan Doyle. This book returns to the facts. Accompanied by photos of the people involved and maps of the area, this is an investigation of an enduring mystery and features the historical background of the ship, the histories of the cast of characters, the theories and the story to date, including the recent discovery of the wreckage."

Jack the Ripper : the facts by Paul Begg ( Book )
5 editions published between 1988 and 2006 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1888 the Whitechapel area of London was the scene of some of the most brutal murders ever recorded in history - and yet the case of Jack the Ripper remains unsolved. Steering clear of wild conspiracy theories, and spurious attempts to advance new theories about the identity of the culprit, Paul Begg instead provides the facts behind one of the most infamous and grisly episodes of the Victorian era. The book is a social history of Victorian East London as it is about the murders themselves. Begg argues that the case excited such interest precisely because of the notoriety of the East End at the time. Chronological coverage includes detailed accounts of the lives of each of the victims and an examination of the police investigation
