Hardback. A comprehensive and intriguing expose of one of the world's most chilling cases of serial murder - and the police force that failed to solve it. Vain and charismatic Walter Sickert made a name for himself as a painter in Victorian London. But the ghoulish nature of his art - as well as extensive evidence - points to another name, one that's left its bloody mark on the pages of history: Jack the Ripper. The author has collected never-before-seen archival material - including a rare mortuary photo, personal correspondence and a will with a mysterious autopsy clause - and applied cutting-edge forensic science to open an old crime to new scrutiny. Incorporating material from 'Portrait of a Killer: Jack the Ripper - Case Closed', this new edition has been revised and expanded to include 8 new chapters, detailed maps and hundreds of images that bring the sinister case to life. Profusely Illus. in colour and b/w, Timeline, Appendix, Bibliog. and Index + Image Credits. 553pp. 8vo. h/back. Ex-lib. with small rubber stamp to tp. with neatly tipped-in 'pocket/docket' and barcode label to ffep. Vg. in protected F. dw. A heavy book which will require additional postage, particularly if shipped overseas.
