Default Another Sickert Book?

It would appear that Mrs. Cornwell is not done with Walter Sickert.

What a great idea!

Sickert driven by Druitt and assisted by Gull, murders the women while Prince Eddy films it with a new fangled camera. But the film gets stolen so the royal family ask Tumblety, Cream and Deeming to get the film back which Kosminski witnesses, hence why he's thrown into an asylum to get him out of the way. Bury and Fegelbaum play tug of war with the piece of Eddowes' apron before a dog jumps up, grabs it and returns it to his master, Fogelma. Fogelma passes it on to Pedachenko who is really Abberline in disguise but he doesn't want the case solved just yet.....

Meanwhile Eddy indiscreetly tells his tutor JK Stephen who wants a bit of the action and blackmails the Royal Family. He gets hit by a windmill and after stabbing some bread, dissapears from the scene. But all the while, Klosowski is acting as a go between between the locals on Whitechapel Rd and the Police, hence why Abberline forgets himself and says that he knew him in 1888 before Swanson kicks him under the table.

One piece of info that Klos passess over is that MJK's previous Beau Fleming, has been sniffing around so Abberline passes the info to Sgt Godley who mistakenly arrests her current chap, Barnett. D'Onston gives Barnett an alibi though in return for a piece of MJK's hair which he, D'Onston, uses in a potion to make himself invisible.

And whilst invisible he witnesses the former prime minister Gladstone carrying merrily on inviting prostitutes into his carriage whilst the worst anyone suspects is that he's a gentle, albeit naiive old fool. After dispatching Frances Coles, Gladstone has a change of heart and asks Maybrick to take the fall for him which being a patriot and gentleman, he happily does. But his obviously made up recollection of the murders fools no-one and goes missing for 100 years just in time for the ghost of David Cohen to add a few lines to the Swanson marginalia before chuckling off into history.


That's five minutes of my life I won't get back. But still more likely than Patricia Cornwell's book!

regards,

My theory regarding escaped American Indians and the seventh cavalry makes more sense and is much more believable.

Hi,
I was going to start a thread on this myself after reading an article from the London Evening Standard on line.
She claims to have more evidence of a Royal Conspiracy...does anyone know what this might be?

Regards.

I think it has something to do with Gull. She thinks he was Sickert's doctor or something. Of course, Gull had nothing to do with the Ripper murders any more than did Sickert. I'm sure she has much new 'evidence', but it will have to do with Sickert and the Ripper letters and nothing to do with the actual Ripper murder investigation.

Yours truly,

Tom Wescott

DNA, huh? Sickert was cremated, so where's the DNA going to lead, down the primrose path? Because if the DNA matches on Sickert's known letters to JtR letters, Sickert is beyond comparing DNA. Maybe Cornwell is going to go for mitochondrial DNA and Sickert's mother's body?

I remember reading that the press and police received some 10000 plus letters regarding the ripper murders.Linking one man to a communication sent during the period of the murders is a very long way from naming him as our killer.
