Casebook Review:

According to Sophie Herfort, Jack the Ripper was none other than Melville Macnaghten, author of the famous Macnaghten Memoranda and later Assistant Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police. Herfort theorizes that Macnaghten perpetrated the crimes partly to embarrass his rival, Sir Charles Warren. The author tries valiantly to uncover evidence to support this thesis, but in the end I think most readers will be left far from convinced that Macnaghten and the Ripper were one and the same.
