Paperback. SIGNED. Foreword by David Jessell. Jack the Ripper was an American, who escaped police custody. When he fled from London the Ripper killings ceased, but then started up again on the other side of the Atlantic. A team of officers from Scotland Yard failed to track him down in America. Did the police 'lose' files in order to cover-up their own incompetence in letting him escape? Startling new evidence uncovered by the authors, who both worked for Suffolk police at the time, lead them to these conclusions in this breakthrough book on the most notorious killer of all time. The man in question turned out to be a more infamous and extraordinary character than anyone could possibly have imagined, a man well known in his own country, at once flamboyant and secretive, an habitue of both high society and the underworld, a man driven by a obsessive hatred of women. Illus., Afterword, Addendum I, Addendum II, Appendices, Sources, Select Bibliog. and Index. 293pp. p/back. PRESENTATION COPY INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY STEWART P. EVANS. With the usual browned pp. o/w Nr. F. with no creasing to covers.
