    VERY hard to put down. Yet another informant comes forward about Walter Sickert's possible connection to the Ripper killings. Thought-provoking! On the other hand, I do not see the reasoning behind some of the author's conclusions -- they call for explanations she never offers. Also, my confidence in her was seriously shaken by the fact that she consistently confuses Elizabeth Stride and Annie Chapman, not only in the photo captions but in the text. Sickert is supposed to have told his son that he tried to save Mary Jane Kelly's life by pointing out Liz, because she used Mary Kelly as an alias; yet he supposedly told Florence Pash that Annie Chapman was killed by mistake because she was confused with Kelly? She never explains how, if Sickert was the lone killer, he could possibly have confused the identities of a woman he used to live with and a woman he never met.
