Resumo:

Does the bloody trail of Jack the Ripper finally lead to America? This headline-making book offers convincing proof that the serial killer who terrorized London in 1888 was, in fact, an American. Spurred by the startling discovery of a letter written by a Scotland Yard inspector, two veteran police investigators have traced the shadowy movements of a self-styled "doctor" from St. Louis who had a criminal record spanning both sides of the Atlantic. Two decades after the.

Ripper's murderous spree, Inspector John George Littlechild, then retired, laments in his fateful letter: "to my mind a very likely [suspect] ... was an American quack named Francis Tumblety ... his feelings toward women were remarkable and bitter in the extreme." Littlechild expresses dismay that Tumblety, who was in custody only briefly, was ever granted bail, enabling him to flee London - just as the murders ended. The Littlechild letter, printed in this book,

provides crucial details either overlooked by police officials at the time of the investigation or later suppressed because they would reveal the same officials had allowed their prime suspect to slip through their fingers.
