The Ripper and the Royals
Melvyn Fairclough
London: Duckworth, 1991
hbk, np, ISBN 0-7156-2362-1

Casebook Review:

Yet another Masonic Royal conspiracy theory, which even Fairclough himself (the author) has now disavowed. Of particular interest is the emergence of the "Abberline diary," which was quickly proved a forgery. Not recommended whatsoever.
