"Jack the Ripper: The Definitive History is not yet another attempt to identify the culprit.

Mary Celeste : the greatest mystery of the sea by Paul Begg( Book )

16 editions published between 2004 and 2017 in English and held by 235 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."
