Between 1959 and 1965, eight prostitutes were murdered in West London by a serial killer, in the most notorious unsolved crimes since Jack the Ripper. By the time of the eighth murder, the motive and identity of the killer—dubbed Jack the Stripper—were the subject of endless speculation by the media. The murderer never struck again, and in 1970, the detective who had led the inquiry announced in his memoirs that the killer had committed suicide as the net closed around him, and that the police had vowed never to reveal his identity. The question of the killer's identity is reopened here, as the author has interviewed surviving police officers, witnesses, and associates of the victims; and has examined the evidence, the rumors, and half truths. Every detail of the investigation is reconstructed in this recreation of the dark, brutal world of prostitutes in 1960s West London.
