"Vain and charismatic Walter Sickert made a name for himself as a painter in Victorian London. But the ghoulish nature of his art--as well as extensive evidence--points to another name, one that's left its bloody mark on the pages of history: Jack the Ripper. Cornwell has collected never-before-seen archival material--including a rare mortuary photo, personal correspondence, and a will with a mysterious autopsy clause--and applied cutting-edge forensic science to open an old crime to new scrutiny"--Amazon.com

This was a good read because the author has done such an exhaustive research and frames it more or less objectively. I didn't finish because I was persuaded to agree with her after several chapters and it became repetitive to me. Not a great book, but a very good one.
