Pre-ordered myself a copy. Hope it's well-researched and the next best thing to Ms Arif writing it.

Abby,

Talking to Ed recently, he says he is working on it, it may just take time I guess, which i fully understand.

If Lechmere is fingered as both the ripper and the torso killer I will not be buying the book because as I've said before Lechmere was a witness and is a terrible suspect.

Good thinking! Why wait to see how such a thing is built under? No, just decide that regardless of the evidence, it MUST be wrong if Lechmere is pointed out as the killer.

Itīs always nice to see an application of unbiased and clear thinking.

I agree with Fisherman here.

I have issues with the candidature of Cross/Lechmere as the Whitechapel killer, but I also have in my head the old quote, "When the circumstances change I change my mind".

Let's wait and see what the book says, the evidence presented and the response to the many objections re Lechmere/ Cross as the killer, and then we can debate the issue fully.

Thanks for that. Iīd just like to point out that I do not know how smart a man Drew Gray is. Meaning that I am in no way sure that he favours Lechmere. If I have given the impression that I know, Iīd like to establish that this is not so. I havenīt got the faintest, but it reads to me as if Gray will connect the series and present a suspect. But letīs wait and see!

From a text by Drew Gray on Mary Kelly and the 130 years that have passed:

"A year after the murders seemed to have ceased although many researchers are far from convinced the killer had stopped with Kelly. My own research suggests he continued into the early 1890s only stopping when his own body succumbed to the disease that killed him."

Apparently, he has somebody else than Lechmere in mind!
