Hardback. The identity of Jack the Ripper is one of the greatest unsolved crime mysteries of all time - until perhaps the 'nude murders' of the 20th century. In the 1950s and 1960s a series of prostitutes were found dead, most of them strangled, and their naked bodies dumped in quiet places across London. The name of the killer is still unknown. How many were slayed by this one man? Why did he attack them? And why did the murders suddenly cease? This book attempts to answer these questions and to reveal the murderer. More than a jigsaw puzzle of facts and hypotheses, it is an insight by one of London's leading journalists of the day, into the harrowing underground world of prostitution, crime and murder. 190pp. small 8vo. h/back. For some reason pages 98-128 have browned, o/w covers are F. in frayed and worn Fair only dw. Very Scarce.
