About this title

Synopsis:

"It's either a genuine confession by Jack the Ripper, or it's an extraordinary novel...Only you can decide."―Paul Begg, author of Jack the Ripper: The Definitive History

In the Whitechapel neighborhood of London in 1888, five women were horribly mutilated and murdered by the infamous killer, Jack the Ripper. Though there were many suspects, the monster was never caught.

This recently discovered memoir from the 1920s introduces a new suspect: James Willoughby Carnac, a little-known figure who claims to have been the Ripper. Carnac describes the events and geography of Whitechapel in 1888 with chilling accuracy, including details of the murders that appear to have been unavailable to the public at the time. He presents a credible motive for becoming Jack, and, for the first time ever, a reason for ending the killing spree. Ultimately, you, the reader, must decide if this is simply one of the earliest imaginings of the case―and a groundbreaking literary addition to the Ripper canon―or if it is the genuine autobiography of Jack the Ripper himself.

"A text that will no doubt be debated for years to come."―Alan Hicken, Montacute Museum, Somerset, England

"Intricate and creepy."―The Daily Express (UK)

"Easily read and worth it for the ending."―Kirkus
