Inside is new information pointing to Thompson’s guilt, including what he told about wanting to kill prostitutes, and his ill-fated relationship with one. His drug habit, mental illness, urges to mutilate, and confrontations with the police are all exposed. Every clue left by the Ripper is analysed to detail the murders in light of Thompson candidacy.
It tells the incredible story behind Thompson’s homelessness, and his rescue by an editor fascinated in the murders. All is revealed; Thompson’s mysterious death, rise to fame, the secret alteration and destruction of his papers and a horrifying motive behind one of the greatest crimes in history.
