The Prince, His Tutor and the Ripper: The Evidence Linking James Kenneth Stephen to the Whitechapel Murders
Deborah McDonald
McFarland, 2007. Softcover. 232pp.
Illustration, bibliography, index.

Casebook Review:

Long-time Ripper researchers might not give a second look to a book with the words "Prince", "James Kenneth Stephen" and "Ripper" in the title - but in this case, they'd be missing out on a quite refreshing read. McDonald provides a great deal of new information on J.K. Stephen, and weaves his life story into those of Prince Eddy and Montague John Druitt; two men whose lives, according to McDonald, were inextricably linked. In the end, McDonald seems to suggest that neither of these three men were likely to have been the Ripper, though in Stephen's case she does offer a few tenuous links to the East End. A good read with a number of new insights into the life and character of J.K. Stephen.
