553 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w and colour illustrations - maps, photographs, reproductions. "(A) comprehensive and intriguing expose of one of the world's most chilling cases of serial murder - and the police force that failed to solve it. Vain and charismatic Walter Sickert made a name for himself as a painter in Victorian London. But the ghoulish nature of his art - as well as extensive evidence - points to another name: Jack the Ripper. Cornwell has collected never-before-seen archival material - including a rare mortuary photo, personal correspondence and a will with a mysterious autopsy clause - and applied cutting-edge forensic science to open an old crime to new scrutiny. Incorporating material from 'Portrait of a Killer: Jack the Ripper - Case Closed', this new edition has been revised and expanded to include eight new chapters, detailed maps and hundreds of images that bring the sinister case to life." Minor wrinkling at the bottom of the spine. Dust jacket has very minor rubbing on the rear panel.
