The Revelation of Jack the Ripper
The archetype of all serial killers tells his life story. Why the murders happened, exactly how they happened in every detail and why they stopped.
When people writer, Alan Scarfewrote, why he wrote this novel he generally sidesteps the question and begins by saying what the book is not. It is NOT yet another in a long line of attempts to prove the identity of Jack the Ripper once and for all.
That said, the great polymath and Ripper expert Colin Wilson said that he thought using Lyttleton Forbes Winslow as the suspect was a 'very good idea'. And the eminent 'Ripperologist' Michael diGrazia said in his review, "One is continually nodding, yes, that's how it must have happened."
The events described in the book are one hundred percent accurate in regard to all the known facts of the case. A case that for over a century has been meticulously researched but during which surprisingly little attention has been paid to the intricate involvement of Forbes Winslow.
But what is the book about? Well, it's an examination of how a 'perfectly normal upper-middle-class family man' can become a serial killer and, beyond that, it explores why so many mass murders, exterminations and genocidal atrocities have occurred throughout the blood-soaked history of humankind.
