Robinson 1997 (hardcover)
Prisoner 1167: The Madman Who Was Jack the Ripper
a.k.a. The Real Jack the Ripper: The Secret of Prisoner 1167
Jim Tully
Robinson, May 1997
416 pp. ISBN 1854879219 £16.99 (hardback)

Casebook Review:

A triumphant achivement on the part of Jim Tully, well-researched and written. James Kelly is his suspect, a lunatic upholsterer and wife-murderer who is actually in the Guiness book of world records for his escape from Broadmoor asylum. Tully weaves a fascinating story, regardless of your feelings on Kelly as a suspect. Recommended.
