Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Portrait of a Killer: Jack the Ripper Case Closed

This is a book about using science/facts to determine who Jack the Ripper was, therefore it's hard to really classify this book. It focuses on Walter Richard Sickert, a famous artist, and compares Sickert's life with Jack the Ripper's. There is a strong if unbreakable case for Sickert being the Ripper.
