Donald McCormick
The Identity of Jack the Ripper
Jarrolds, 1959. 224pp. bib. index.


Casebook Review:

Considered by many to be one of the worst Ripper books ever published. Almost all the evidence cited by McCormick was either completely falsified or significantly altered to fit his Dr. Pedachenko theory. Recommended only for collectors.
