An Amazon Best Book of the Month: History
“A groundbreaking revisitation of one of history’s most notorious and hotly debated unsolved mysteries. Patricia Cornwell’s knowledge of criminology and forensics is near unrivaled, and her passionate and informed narration—told with unwavering conviction—may just tip the scales of justice once and for all.” —Criminal Element
“A highly readable exposé of perhaps the world’s most famously chilling case of serial murder; the vain efforts of the police to solve the crimes; and the compelling revelations [Patricia’s] exhaustive research has unearthed.” —The Huffington Post
About the Author
Patricia Cornwell was born in Florida and raised in North Carolina. She sold her first novel, Postmortem, while working as a computer analyst at the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Richmond, Virginia. Postmortem was her first bona fide forensic thriller, and it would go on to win the Edgar, Creasey, Anthony and Macavity awards as well as the French Prix du roman d’aventures. Since then, she’s authored twenty-nine New York Times bestsellers and won the Sherlock Award, the Gold Dagger Award, the RBA Thriller Award and the Medal of Chevalier of the Order of Arts and Letters for her contributions to literary and artistic development.
To date, Cornwell’s books have sold over 100 million copies in 36 languages in over 120 countries. She now lives in Boston, where she tirelessly researches advanced forensic techniques to include in her work.

Top customer reviews
With her expert knowledge of modern forensics, Cornwell delves into the evidence to investigate renown artist Walter Sickert. The use of graphic crime scene photos, original letters from the Ripper taunting the police, and artwork by Sickert, this is very well constructed and offers a strong foundation for the artist to be the murderer. Even if you know nothing of the case, her story telling of the events transports you to a time when London was a desperate desolate city. She writes in detail of Victorian society and class which gives you a very tight book that will keep you obsessed even if you are not convinced of the suspect. With interactive chapter pictures, it is an exceptional book.
