Overview

There have been countless attempts to solve the brutal murders committed more than 100 years ago by Jack the Ripper, but this most famous of British criminal cases finally benefits from a clear, professional eye to analyze the evidence with all the benefits of modern investigative techniques. Casting aside the rumors, fantasies, and urban legends which have haunted this case for so long, Trevor Marriott produces some startling results—while it has long been accepted that Jack the Ripper killed only five women, Marriott believes there were up to nine victims. Most astonishingly of all, a previously unconsidered suspect who also committed murders in America and Germany has been firmly put in the frame. All previous theories are refuted in what may possibly be the final word on the Ripper murders.

Meet the Author

Trevor Marriott joined the Bedfordshire Police in 1970. During his time as a detective he was assigned to murder cases and was also in Special Branch. Throughout this highly successful career, he developed a fascination with the unsolved Whitechapel murders, looking at the century-old case through the experienced eyes of a modern-day criminal investigator. The knowledge and insight into the criminal mind gained by interviewing murderers, rapists and robbers proved invaluable in his work to pinpoint the real perpetrator of Britain's most notorious serial killings.
