Synopsis

The Maybrick A to Z by Christopher Jones

The Maybrick story has everything: sex, adultery, prostitution, drugs, an American beauty, a dramatic murder trial, interventions by Queen Victoria and three US Presidents, and of course, Jack the Ripper. It covers the two separate yet interlinked stories that made headline news across the world in two different centuries. Did Florence Maybrick murder her husband with arsenic? Did James Maybrick become the world's first and most infamous serial killer? The book also contains three opening chapters that provide an overview of the story of the lives of James and Florence Maybrick; the evidence and drama of Florence's trial in 1889; and, the controversy surrounding the emergence of the so-called Ripper Diary in the 1990s that made James Maybrick a leading candidate to be Jack the Ripper.
