About the Book

Now a major TV series

‘A masterpiece that reads like a thriller’ Time Out

A gripping and probing account of the biggest criminal manhunt in British history.

It is over 40 years since Peter Sutcliffe was convicted of murdering 13 women and attacking 7 more. Still, he remains a killer of almost mythical proportions; his surviving victims, and their families, forever attached to his infamy.

Michael Bilton’s acclaimed account is a powerful indictment of the calamitous investigation that logged over 2 million man-hours of police work – the biggest criminal manhunt in British history. With exclusive access to the detectives involved, the pathologist’s archives and declassified documents, this account reads like the most gripping of thrillers.

Note that it has not been possible to include the same picture content that appeared in the original print version.

Critical Praise

<p>‘A masterpiece that reads like a thriller.’ Time Out</p><p>‘There is unlikely to be a more comprehensive or carefully researched account of the case. To read ‘Wicked Beyond Belief’ is to have a sense of being physically present at the day-to-day investigation, experiencing the frustrations, the stress and the public outrage at its lack of success as the years passed and murder followed.’ P.D. James, Mail on Sunday</p><p>‘Bilton knows more about the Ripper case than anyone living.’ Blake Morrison, Guardian</p> -
