If you find Martin's observation very reasonable, Tom, does that mean you wish to revise your statement, which you made in your book, that Mallows must not have been far from the London Hospital when she sustained her injury "or else she likely would have bled to death"?

And do you think that the London Hospital at about 3am on a Thurday night/Friday morning in August 1888 would have been "a madhouse"?

I remain open to all possibilities.

Hi Tom.

I've read both your books and find both of them to be thoroughly entertaining, and most of all exciting and engaging in terms of research and potential avenues opened for further discussion.

Top quality stuff and look forward to your third book on Charles Le Grand, which although a "person of interest" especially in the Stride Case, at the moment I don't share your view in regarding him as an out-and-out suspect for the whole series of murders.

Hi Sleuth, many thanks both for reading my books and for saying what you did about them. I'm not sure I personally view Le Grand as a suspect in the Ripper murders, but at least one copper at the time did and he knew more than we would have. I do agree he's a very viable suspect in the Stride murder, maybe Eddowes as well. My Le Grand book will not be a typical suspect book.

Yours truly,

Tom Wescott

None of your books are "typical", Tom. That's what makes them such interesting reads.

I must admit I thought I detected a shadowy Grand-like figure behind the Tabram murder and the 'framing' of Pizer in TBHM: someone who read the Times, carried a swordstick and could write an anonymous letter in decent English to the press. Someone of a higher social class than that brute Daniel Sullivan. I thought Tom even gave him a name: Shadow Man.

Was my imagination playing tricks on me?

Tom's work is always 'typically Tom', and none the worse for that. Most of the other Ripper suspect/theory books I have bought in recent years warrant only one read and are then consigned to the bookshelf to gather dust. Tom's books are always worth a second, third, fourth... read. They can easily be recognised when they are on the shelf by their plume of day-glo post-it notes.

I wish him every success with his forthcoming Grand book.
