'Roland provides a well-balanced overview … extensively illustrated and with timely coverage of some of the latest theories and research.' Stephen P. Ryder, Editor, Casebook: Jack the Ripper
More than a century after he stalked the streets of London's East End, Jack the Ripper continues to exert a macabre fascination on the popular imagination. After scrupulously re-examining official documents of the time, investigative journalist Paul Roland strips away decades of myth and misconceptions to reveal the identity of a brand-new suspect who has never been seriously considered until now.
If you are expecting a finger to be pointed at one of the usual suspects, be prepared to have your assumptions turned on their head.
