Back cover copy

The Diary of Jack the Ripper, which came to light in 1991, revealed the identity of the world's most famous serial killer as Liverpool cotton merchant James Maybrick. the diary was widely dismissed as a hoax at the time, yet it has never been proven to be a forgery. This, argues Paul Feldman, is because the diary is genuine. jack the Ripper - The Final Chapter provides indeniable proof that the haunting diary was indeed written by james Maybrick, the man who committed the gruesome Whitechapel murders and came to be known as Jack the Ripper. The Final Chapter tells how the largest. most expensive Ripper investigation ever undertaken led author Paul Feldman through the smoke screen of an official cover-up, via the royals and the Masons, to establish the true provenance of the sinister diary and they mysterious 'Ripper Watch', leaving no doubt that James Maybrick was Jack the Ripper. In his balanced account, Feldman uncovers crucial evidence about the murders and presents sensational revelations from the Ripper's living descendants. Many books claim to have uncovered the true identity of Jack the Ripper, but Feldman's afrument remains overwhelmingly convincing.show more
