Hardback. In 2007 the author bought a shawl believed to have been left beside the body of Jack the Ripper's fourth victim, Catherine Eddowes. It was the start of an extraordinary 7-yr quest for Russell as he sought to authenticate the shawl and learn its secrets. After undergoing extensive forensic testing by one of the country's top scientists, the shawl was not only shown to be genuine and stained with Catherine Eddowes' blood, but in a massive breakthrough the killer's DNA was also discovered - DNA that would allow the author to finally identify Jack the Ripper as Aaron Kosminski. Bringing together ground-breaking forensic discoveries and gripping historical detective work, the author constructs a convincing case for identifying the world's most notorious serial killer.
