Who really was Jack the Ripper? Was he a solitary assassin lurking in the shadows of gaslit London? A sexual maniac wreaking a personal vendetta on a sinful society? Or, was Jack the Ripper not one man but three - two cold-blooded murderers and an accomplice involved in this country's greatest conspiracy since Guy Fawkes? Now in this ground-breaking book, Stephen Knight produces startling new evidence that the hitherto unsolved Ripper murders were in fact the culmination of a full-scale cover-up organised by the highest level of government and extending to the monarchy itself.
