The original publication of "The Diary of Jack the Ripper" in 1993 caused a sensation throughout the world. Its pages reveal the unimaginable - that over a century ago, the legendary serial killer at work in London's Whitechapel has written a confession of his bestial mutilations of women. The writer is identifiable as James Maybrick, a 49-year-old cotton merchant from Liverpool, a strychnine and arsenic addict with a history of domestic violence. His diary has now survived more rigorious analysis than any previous Ripper document. In this book, investigative writer Shirley Harrison tells the story of how the diary was tested and examined. Her narrative follows in the footsteps of Maybrick the Ripper, and, supported by a mass of fresh evidence, she explains why she became convinced that the diary is genuine. This new edition has been updated by the author to include the latest research. The diary itself is reproduced in full, so that readers can assess for themselves the deeply disturbing and chilling words of Jack the Ripper from across the abyss of more than a century
