The pages of The Diary of Jack the Ripper reveal the unimaginable—that more than a century ago, the legendary serial killer at work in London’s Whitechapel kept a record of his bestial mutilations of women. The writer of the horrific journal is James Maybrick, a depraved, drug-taking, womanizing, 49-year-old Liverpool cotton merchant with a history of domestic violence. In this analysis of his diary, investigative author Shirley Harrison explains all about the origins of the text and the rigorous scientific analysis it has endured while revealing startling new information about Maybrick's shadowy background. This evidence, along with a chilling confession scratched into a watch—"I am Jack. J Maybrick," provide powerful justification that Maybrick was Jack the Ripper. The diary itself is reproduced in full, so that readers can judge whether these are the deeply distributing words of Jack the Ripper himself, reaching out from across the abyss of more than a century.

Have you ever wondered where Jack the Ripper came from? What were his real motives, what prompted those notorious deaths? Veronica Roper wondered the same as strange things began to happen in the house she inherited in Whitechapel, England, known by the locals as ""Ripper Remains."" Inside the house she finds a diary, written by a long-lost ancestor detailing her intimate association with Jack the Ripper. For while Jack's body may have passed on over a century ago, his spirit is alive and well-and in search of a new host. But is it Jack she truly needs to fear, or her newly acquired husband, Weston, who has a shady past, a suspiciously large income and who never discusses what he does for a living?

Will the rare autographed baseball your great-uncle gave you put your children through college? Is your grandmother’s chest of drawers really a seventeenth-century antique, or merely a reproduction? A leader in forgery detection and forensic investigation, Joe Nickell reveals his secrets to detecting artifacts items in Real or Fake: Studies in Authentication. Detailing how the pros determine whether an Abraham Lincoln signature is forged or if a photograph of Emily Dickinson is genuine, Nickell provides the essential tools necessary to identify counterfeits. In this general introduction to the principles of authentication, Nickell provides readers with step-by-step explanations of the science used to detect falsified documents, photographs, and other objects. Illustrating methods used on hit shows such as Antiques Roadshow and History Detectives, Nickell recommends that aspiring investigators employ a comprehensive approach to identifying imitations. One should consider the object’s provenance (the origin or derivation of an artifact), content (clues in the scene or item depicted), and material composition (what artifacts are made of), as well as the results of scientific analyses, including radiographic, spectroscopic, microscopic, and microchemical tests. Including fascinating cases drawn from Nickell’s illustrious career, Real or Fake combines historical and scientific investigations to reveal reproductions and genuine objects. Nickell explains the warning signs of forgery, such as patching and unnatural pen lifts; chronicles the evolution of writing instruments, inks, and papers; shows readers how to date photographs, papers, and other materials; and traces the development of photographic processes since the mid-nineteenth century. Lavishly illustrated with examples of replicas and authentic objects inspected by Nickell, Real or Fake includes case studies of alleged artifacts including Jack the Ripper’s diary, a draft of the Gettysburg Address, notes by Charles Dickens, Jefferson Davis’s musket, and debris from the Titanic.

Bringing together ground-breaking forensic discoveries - including vital DNA evidence - and gripping historical detective work, Naming Jack the Ripper constructs the first truly convincing case for identifying the world's most notorious serial killer. In 2007, businessman Russell Edwards bought a shawl believed to have been left beside the body of the fourth victim, Catherine Eddowes. He knew that, if genuine, the shawl would be the only piece of crime scene evidence still in existence. It was the start of an extraordinary seven-year quest for Russell as he sought to authenticate the shawl and learn its secrets. He had no idea that this journey would take him so far. After undergoing extensive forensic testing by one of the country's top scientists, the shawl was not only shown to be genuine, and stained with Catherine Eddowes' blood, but in a massive breakthrough the killer's DNA was also discovered - DNA that would allow Russell to finally put a name to Jack the Ripper . . .

Over a century ago a series of shocking mutilation murders took place in a squalid, overcrowded district of Victorian London. Five women fell victim to a man driven by rage and violent fantasy. The newspapers of the day gave him a chilling nickname, a name that evokes images of gas-lit foggy streets and a top-hatted sinister figure carrying a Gladstone bag. From the outset, the murderer attained almost mythical status merely by virtue of his name and his uncanny ability to avoid detection. The legend of Jack the Ripper was born. Peter Hodgson’s detailed and entertaining overview of Ripper lore in fact, film and fiction analyses the fiend’s awesome legacy. He explores the institutions and the individuals: the Jewish community and their rituals with meat, the scandal-prone royal family, the Victorian police and their simplistic methods of investigation, the streetwalkers and their trade. This book compares the fiction with the reality of those ghastly events, and clearly shows how the real killer has been transformed into a creature of the mind–the ‘other’ Jack the Ripper. Examination of the victims’ mutilations reveals the true nature of ‘Jack’s’ grotesque fantasies. This aspect–coupled with his elementary anatomical knowledge–is used in conjunction with the FBI’s appraisal of the case to construct a unique psychological profile. From the long list of candidates the author reveals his prime suspect for the role of the world’s most infamous serial killer. Book reviews online: PublishedBestsellers website.

You’ve never read a Ripper book like this. Christian was born in 1852. He carried out a sexual attack on a local girl and so fled to London to avoid being lynched. He and best friend Jimmy became trainee surgeons with a nefarious organization (The Firm). Both men fell in love with the same woman. Christian later illegally married her and further on became a whoremaster. In 1888, after he found out his “wife” had had a long sexual affair (and a child) with his best friend, his drug use and rage led him to release his wrath upon the prostitutes he formerly protected. Lauretta his “wife” kept a diary writing about him realizing she was married to Jack the Ripper. After he brutally murdered numerous women usually for a reason as it was not random, he realized there was one loose end: Jimmy’s son. Thus, members of The Firm were hired to murder him secretly and dispose of the body. In 1913, the Ripper died after suffering via a STD. After his death, his family found a stash of money in his favourite armchair. His family lived on without him, and Lauretta (the hero) didn’t pass over until 1934.

No murderer in history is more enduringly fascinating, notorious, or mysterious than Jack the Ripper. And few are as cinematic, instantly evoking images of menacing alleyways, flickering gaslights and hansom cabs, swirling fog, prostitutes in their tawdry finery, and the cape-shrouded figure of a faceless stalker. In this absorbing guide, Denis Meikle looks at Jack the Ripper on the large and small screen. Close attention is paid to such standards as Baker and Berman's 1958 "Jack the Ripper" and Hammer Studio's 1971 "Hands of the Ripper, " as well as many less familiar examples of the Ripper genre. Meikle brings the story right up to the present with a penetrating account of the filming of "From Hell, " based on the groundbreaking graphic novel by Alan Moore and starring Johnny Depp and Heather Graham. Horror, costume drama, conspiracy theory: all the cinematic angles are explored, as the author uncovers the murky origins of the slasher genre.
