From New York Times bestselling creator Patricia Cornwell comes Ripper: The Secret Life of Walter Sickert, a comprehensive and intriguing exposé of probably the most world’s most chilling cases of serial murder—and the police force that failed to resolve it.
Vain and charismatic Walter Sickert made a name for himself as a painter in Victorian London. However the ghoulish nature of his art—in addition to extensive evidence—points to some other name, one that’s left its bloody mark at 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 state-of-the-art 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.
Note: This book accommodates images that some readers might find disturbing.
