Paperback, 1st edition. Victorian London in the year 1888 - and a homicidal maniac known as Jack the Ripper is stalking the streets. Over 100yrs. later the identity of this killer remains unknown. In this book the author provides an ingenious new interpretation, and solution, to a mystery of enduring fascination. He convincingly argues that Jack the Ripper wasn't one person but three, and that one of the three was a French woman who successfully masqueraded as the final victim - known to posterity as Mary Jane Kelly. Knight reveals the true identity of the 3 individuals, profiles their respective lives and explores their motives. From terrifying descriptions of bloody murder to a portrayal of the broader historical context, which transports the reader from the bleak streets of London's Whitechapel to the dark and dangerous rues of Paris. The author provides the documentary evidence to reveal the most feared killer in the annals of crime. This is Jack the Ripper as you've never seen her. Illus. 313pp. trade p/back. F. with no creasing to covers.
