Hannibal 1988 (German hardcover)
Melvin Harris.
Jack the Ripper: The Bloody Truth
Columbus Books, 1987

Casebook Review:

Harris's books are noted for their meticulous research and attention to detail, though few have been persuaded by his argument for D'Onston as Jack the Ripper. Nevertheless, this book effectively demolishes the myths surrounding Pedachenko and the Royal Conspiracy. Harris's paths of deduction as he "sets the record straight" are not only ingenious but fun to read as well. Highly recommended.
