The Ripper Code

by Thomas Toughill

The Ripper Code Synopsis

Shows that the official Ripper files contain little of forensic interest. This book approaches the subject of the killer's identity from a different angle - the life and works of Oscar Wilde. It suggests that the Ripper was a 'friend' of Oscar Wilde, and that Wilde dropped clear hints about this in several of his works.

The Ripper Code Press Reviews

A most original piece of scholarship. --Robin Odell, author, Ripperology
