This book answers an emphatic yes! Drawing on recently discovered sources, the author argues that the Rippers identity was no mystery to the police in 1891. Assistant Commissioner Sir Melville Macnaghten, having discovered that the murderer was a young barrister who drowned himself in the River Thames, went to elaborate lengths to both reveal and conceal his identity. Along with a famous writer, Macnaghten shared the solution with the public, yet altered the data just enough to protect the deceased suspects respectable family. Dozens of photos are included, some never before seen.
