Hardback. SIGNED. The true identity of Jack the Ripper - Britain's most notorious murderer - revealed at last. Featuring Sir John Williams, doctor to Queen Victoria and her family and esteemed founder of the National Library of Wales. 'The person identified in this book as the killer of five women in London's East End in 1888 has never before been named a suspect in more than a hundred years of intense speculation. A very eminent man in his field naming him will cause huge shockwaves in the places where he is still venerated. One of the authors is a direct descendant of the killer. He did not set out to find Jack the Ripper, but the evidence discovered while researching his illustrious ancestor is incontrovertible. Together the authors prove that their suspect was in Whitechapel at the same time as the crimes were committed, and had the knowledge and the skills which the nature of the murders required. No one has ever been able to find any evidence linking any of the suspects to the victims. This book puts forward clear evidence connecting the killer to three of the five victims, and circumstantial evidence connecting him to the other two. It also explains why the murders stopped as suddenly as they started. For the very first time, a consistent and plausible explanation for every aspect of the case is presented, meeting all the key criteria of motive, method and opportunity. The authors have even discovered what they are convinced is the murder weapon. This revelatory investigative work means that no one will ever regard the most famous true crime of all in the same way.' Illus., Bibliog., Sources and Index. 227pp. 8vo. h/back. With loosely inserted label SIGNED BY TONY WILLIAMS AND HUMPHREY PRICE. F. in As New protected dw.
