Royal figures Queen Victoria, Edward, Prince of Wales, Prince Albert Victor, King Leopold II of the Belgians; prominent politicians Lord Salisbury, William Gladstone, Randolph Churchill; police officials Sir Charles Warren, Sir Robert Anderson, artists and writers Oscar Wilde, Frank Miles, Algernon Swinburne, Francis Thompson, Lewis Carroll, George Gissing, Walter Sickert are among those who have been implicated in the hunt of the world's first serial sex killer, Jack the Ripper

1.0 out of 5 stars Jack the Ripper: The Celebrity Suspects 24 Sept. 2009
Format:Paperback
I have read this book and found that some of the information on Dr Barnardo is untraceable in the books cited as used. However I had previously read a book by V Hayes (Revelations of the true ripper) which seems to have given this information in complete detail. Wondered if anyone else thought the same?
