In 1888 all of London was in the grip of terror. A madman was killing woman and he called himself Jack the Ripper. He taunted police who seemed unable to stop him. Then, his madness abruptly stopped. Decades passed and the tales of who the murderer was and his violent killing spree grew and grew. Patricia Cornwell wrote this book feeling no-one should be able to get away with such violent crimes, even after death. She used her remarkable skills of meticulous research and scientific expertise to dig into the case and reveal the identity of the Victorian killer. Drawing on evidence, documents and records she reveals the artist and painter who was well respected in his day as well as whose work is collected by museums today.
