Ripper & the Royals by Melvyn Fairclough

| /

Who was ‘Jack the Ripper’? Was he some lone maniac ‘down on whores’? Or were the Ripper murders, as this book shows, the joint enterprise of a group of high-ranking desperadoes acting to protect the Prince of Wales’s heir, the Duke of Clarence, from blackmail? Many hitherto unknown facts are presented in this authoritative book, which was first published in 1991 and includes a foreword by Joseph Sickert. Melvyn Fairclough skillfully unravels the nexus of intrigue that has threatened the Royal family for three generations.
