This is a true story and a frightening one. Not just the horror of what Sutcliffe (the Yorkshire Ripper) did but also the bungled police investigation and why it too them so long to catch him. Bilton focusses on the police and is fairly sympathetic, most of them were just in over their heads. This is a well-written study of a long-running police investigation by someone who followed the case and subsequent inquiries as a journalist.
Took this book as it may interest Dave's Sister. Maybe not but worth asking eh?
Yvonne gave me this. Don't know if it'll interest me, but I may pick it up after I've gotten through some of my others
