From New York Times bestselling author Patricia
Cornwell comes Ripper: The Secret Life of Walter
Sickert, a comprehensive and intriguing exposé of one of
the world’s most chilling cases of serial murder—and the
police force that failed to solve it.
charismatic Walter Sickert made a name for himself as a
painter in Victorian London. But the ghoulish nature of his
art—as well as extensive evidence—points to another name,
one that’s left its bloody mark on the pages of history:
Jack the Ripper. Cornwell has collected never-before-seen
archival material—including a rare mortuary photo, personal
correspondence and a will with a mysterious autopsy
clause—and applied cutting-edge forensic science to open an
old crime to new scrutiny.
Incorporating material from
Portrait of a Killer: Jack the Ripper—Case Closed,
this new edition has been revised and expanded to include
eight new chapters, detailed maps and hundreds of images
that bring the sinister case to life.
