  • New Book

    To anybody interested:

    I have written a book on the 'Jack the Ripper' mystery that contains new photos (one of Montague Druitt is on the cover, while there are two others of the likely murderer inside) and entirely new sources.

    Its central thesis is that Sir Melville Macnaghten posthumously solved the case in 1891. He subsequently disguised the solution for the Edwardian public via his friend; the famous writer George Sims.

    The book will include for the first time ever a bombshell source--unknown since 1922--that arguably supports this revisionist take on a well-worn subject.

    'Jack the Ripper--Case Solved, 1891' will be released by McFarland and Co. on March 15th, 2015:

            It will be very refreshing to have a book written about a person who has been forgotten about a little bit over the years and also a rarity someone actually mentioned by a police officer and in my opinion the most likely candidate for the crown of jack the ripper.

              Thanks!

              Thank-you to all the posters who have expressed support and interest in my book.

              Whether good or bad, it will not be a pointless rehash of what previous books have already done so brilliantly (Farson, Cullen, Odell, Evans, Rumbelow, Begg, Fido, Sudgen, et al.).

              For example, the actual murders only make up about two (and a half) of seventeen chapters. This may disappoint some readers, which is fair enough, but I am trying to say something new about a well-worn subject from a fresh angle: a grotesque story starring an attractive protagonist.

                        Sorry Pinkmoon

                        Yes, it's coming out on Kindle.

                        To Fisherman

                        I have recently added to the manuscript, e.g. to debunk the DNA 'solution'.

                          There are two ways to be fooled, one is to believe what isn't true, the other is to refuse to believe that which is true.

                            I told you elsewhere I'd buy it and I certainly will...it's in my ("obsessive" as my missus calls it) red book...I just hope your writing style equates to your usual web-based thoroughness (and patience with morons like me!)...

                            All the best as always
