This book solves the Jack the Ripper murders. Within is the culmination of twenty years research around the globe. It presents new evidence that, on the night that the Ripper killed his victim, Thompson could look down, from his room; to the passage that led to hers. Inside is proof that Thompson may have been a friend of a victim, that he kept a dissecting scalpel, and that he was taught the rare surgical procedure found on the victims. Here is new evidence for Thompson’s guilt, including what he told about wanting to kill prostitutes, and his ill-fated relationship with one.
