Hardback. A look at the murder mysteries, but without a suspect or suspects in mind. 'Whilst uncovering much new evidence, the author exposes the elaborate game of charade played by the so-called Ripperologists for 100 years. Hard evidence is presented which ridicules the notion that high-ranking Freemasons carried out the murders at the behest of prime ministers and princes, proves that one of the victims was not a victim at all, that other murders carried out in Whitechapel later than 1888 were indeed the work of the one man, and dispels the widely held belief that the crimes of Jack the Ripper were of a sexual nature. By comparison with astonishingly similar modern cases, the true nature of the crimes and their perpetrator is demonstrated. But does he find Jack the Ripper? Yes, it seems so, but, as the author is keen to point out, the identity of Jack the Ripper is not important. What is of enormous import today is to understand the nature of his crimes and why he committed them.' Illus., Sources, References and Notes + Index. 157pp. 8vo. The author was a contributor to the Grey House Books publication 'Who Was Jack the Ripper? A Collection of Present-Day Theories and Observations'. Nr. F. in Vg+ sl. sunned and 'bumped' dw.
