Hardback. 1st UK edn. Between August and November 1888 at least 7 women were murdered in Whitechapel. The gruesome nature of their deaths caused panic and fear in the East End of London for months, and gave rise to the sobriquet which was to become shorthand for a serial killer - Jack the Ripper. For over 100yrs. the murders have remained among one of the world's greatest unsolved crimes, and a wealth of theories have been posited which have pointed the finger at royalty, a barber, a doctor, a woman and an artist. Using her formidable range of forensic and technical skills, the author has applied the rigorous discipline of 21st century police investigation to the extant material, and here presents the hard evidence that the perpetrator of the Whitechapel murders was the world famous artist, Walter Sickert. Illus. + Map eps, Bibliog. and Index. 387pp. 8vo. With the usual browned edges, o/w Nr. F. in Nr. F. dw. A fairly heavy book which will require additional postage if shipped overseas.
