Cranford’s Jack the Ripper?

Did Jack the Ripper once live in Cranford? A real 19th century murder led some to ask that question. The case was largely forgotten by the 21st century but author Luke Jerod Kummer took a fresh look at it in a work of historical fiction he wrote for an Audible Original audiobook, Takers Mad

In this Cranford Radio interview we talk about some of the interesting facts he uncovered and how present day Cranford folks helped him to see what the town was like in the early 1900s.
