Jack the Ripper by Michael Holgate
Book DescriptionRippermania has driven a 120-year-old investigation to identify the depraved perpetrator of the savage murder of five prostitutes in the East End of London. This book gathers together the band of famous personalities whose reputations have been tarnished by modern authors clamouring to name celebrities as suspects, accomplices or conspirators. Royal figures Queen Victoria, Edward, Prince of Wales, Prince Albert Victor, King Leopold II of the Belgians; prominent politicians Lord Salisbury, William Gladstone, Randolph Churchill; police officials Sir Charles Warren, Sir Robert Anderson; and, artists and writers Oscar Wilde, Frank Miles, Algernon Swinburne, Francis Thompson, Lewis Carroll, George Gissing, and Walter Sickert are among those who have been implicated in the hunt for the world's first serial sex killer, Jack the Ripper.
