Publisher's Summary

London, 1891. Less than three weeks after the last Whitechapel murder, 25-year-old Thomas Cutbush is committed to Broadmoor for savage knife attacks on two girls. The arresting officer, Inspector William Race, intrigued by the wealth of connections with the infamous unsolved murders in the East End, starts to wonder whether he has, in fact, arrested Jack the Ripper himself.

Ignored by his superiors, and in despair, the detective eventually decides to take his story to the press. Race’s actions unleash the biggest journalistic investigation of the time. The Sun puts its star reporters on the trail of Thomas Cutbush, and the startling new evidence and compelling eyewitness testimonies they gather set up a sensational scoop.

The Man Who Would Be Jack introduces the truly incredible story of the investigation conducted by The Sun and Inspector Race. With unprecedented access to long-hidden records, David Bullock brings to light findings that would, at last, expose the truth of one of the world’s most tantalising mysteries.

Great story

Well researched, but written in quick paced novel style. Could easily be a high suspense movie. A great read!

I really enjoyed this! Definitely food for thought for an amateur Ripper fan! Great narration, thoroughly engrossing.
