About the Author:

Gerold Frank (1907–1998) was an American author and ghostwriter. Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Frank attended Ohio State University. After graduation, he moved to New York with dreams of becoming a poet, and then moved back to Cleveland to work as a newspaperman. Later, he returned to New York to work for the Journal-American. During World War II, Frank was a war correspondent in the Middle East. He won two Edgar Awards for Best Fact Crime, for his books The Deed and The Boston Strangler, the latter of which was adapted into a film starring Tony Curtis. He was a pioneer of the contemporary literary form of the as-told-to celebrity biography. Frank’s books number in the dozens, and include collaborations with Lillian Roth, Mike Connolly, Diana Barrymore, Zsa Zsa Gabor, and Judy Garland.


“Stock up and stand back. . . . It takes will power to lay the book down, almost as much as it would have required of the victims to keep their doors closed to the man who said he’d been sent to repair their plumbing and repaint their apartments. . . . It is a mad genius stroke and Frank’s book will contribute to a legend and literature of America’s Jack the Ripper.” —Kirkus Reviews
“One of the most remarkable chronicles of true crime ever published. A classic in its genre!” —John Barkham Reviews
“A superb true crime account . . . The book tells a sensational story; it tells it simply, candidly, faithfully, and as completely as one could want. Chilling reading . . . An engrossing book and creepy tale.” —The New York Times
