Description

Shows that the official Ripper files contain little of forensic interest. This book approaches the subject of the killer's identity from a different angle - the life and works of Oscar Wilde. It suggests that the Ripper was a 'friend' of Oscar Wilde, and that Wilde dropped clear hints about this in several of his works.show more
