Softcover. Foreword by Colin Wilson. One popular choice for the identity of Jack the Ripper is James Kenneth Stephen, tutor to the young Prince Albert Victor ("Prince Eddy"). While Stephen superficially fits the profile investigators established, was he really capable of such demented violence? In search of the answer, this book takes an in-depth look at Stephen. Delving into what little is known of his early years, it discusses his family and his formative years at Eton. The work's primary focus, however, is Stephen's relationship with Prince Eddy, who also became a suspect in the murders. How Stephen's life intertwined with those of Prince Eddy and Montague Druitt, another Ripper suspect, is examined in detail. Other incidents of the fateful fall of 1888 and Stephen's surrender to mental illness are also discussed. Illus., Appendices (contains Stephen's poetry and details regarding his ancestry), Chapter Notes, Bibliog. and Index. 232pp. trade size softcover. As New
