Hardback, 1st UK edn. SIGNED. 'New research into hitherto highly confidential files has revealed sensational new evidence which might provide an answer to the greatest conundrum in the history of crime: the identity of Jack the Ripper. This evidence also suggests that for nearly a century, Scotland Yard has been responsible for a cover-up to conceal its incompetence at the time of the murders. On February 11, 1927, a strange old man presented himself at the gates of Britain's Broadmoor Criminal Lunatic Asylum. Astonished warders quickly hustled him inside. For this was no ordinary visitor, and his involvement in the world's most famous murder case can now be told for the first time. After 9-yrs. of painstaking research, this extraordinary tale will be told.'
