The legendary Jack the Ripper murdered several women -- probably at least five, and perhaps as many as ten -- between the years of 1887 and 1891 in the East End of London. The debate over his identity has never been resolved. Suspects named in more than a century of investigation include influential artist Walter Sickert, children's author Lewis Carroll, Randolph Henry Spencer Churchill (father of Winston Churchill), and others ranging from doctors and politicians to wandering lunatics. Alphabetically arranged entries provide biographical information about the suspects, a complete chronology surrounding the case for each suspect's involvement, and an overview of the theorists and research that have contributed to the suspect's positive or negative candidacy. Within these pages may lie the true name of Jack the Ripper. Readers will find an indispensable resource from which to draw conclusions or launch their own research.
