The writer of the horrific journal is James Maybrick, a depraved drug-taking, womanising 49-year-old Liverpool cotton merchant
with a history of domestic violence. In this bestselling analysis of his diary, investigative author Shirley Harrison explains
all about the origins of the text, the rigorous scientific analysis it has endured and reveals startling new information about
Maybrick's shadowy background. All this, combined with a chilling confession scratched into a watch, 'I am Jack. J Maybrick,'
provide powerful justification that Maybrick was Jack the Ripper. The diary itself is reproduced in full, so that you too
can judge whether these are the deeply disturbing words of Jack the Ripper himself, reaching out from across the abyss of
more than a century.
