The True Face of Jack the Ripper
Melvin Harris

Casebook Review:

The third book in a series by Melvin Harris which gradually built up to the revelation of his top suspect, R. D'Onston Stephenson. The story surrounding him is long and twisting, but well discussed by Harris in an almost fictional dialogue style. Not a very compelling book, but one well researched, and it does have some chapters refuting the Maybrick Diary. Recommended.
