'After twelve years of research, true crime expert and former private detective Bruce Paley has finally uncovered the real face behind the chilling murders of Jack the Ripper...(The author) re-examines the evidence from a modern perspective, unearthing a wealth of new information, and creating a vivid picture of contemporary life in Whitechapel...Paley shows how his suspect: was skilled with knives and knowledgeable about anatomy; was a familiar local figure, who had lived near all the victims and murder sites; changed his story regarding his relationship with the last victim, his lover; fits contemporary eyewitness descriptions exactly; had an avowed hatred of prostitutes; matches precisely the model of the archetypal serial killer, as formulated by the FBI's top psychological criminal profilers.'
