Jane’s choice: Portrait of a killer Jack the Ripper – P.Cornwell
Portrait of a killer Jack the Ripper – case closed – Patricia Cornwell
I have always been fascinated by the crimes and mysterious identity of Jack the Ripper. In fact, I would even go as far to say that I consider myself an amateur “Ripperologist”! So when I saw the title of the book “Portrait of a Killer: Jack the Ripper – Case Closed” I just had to read it! “Case Closed”? That’s quite an assumption, maybe even a touch arrogant. Could Patricia Cornwell really succeed in identifying Jack the Ripper where so many had failed before her? What is the name of the most famous serial killer in the world? Are her arguments (based on medical records, DNA analysis and looking at paintings) convincing? I won’t spoil the surprise for you, you’ll have to read it find out for yourself! Then let me know what you think!
