'IT IS AN INCREDIBLE CLAIM BUT WESTON-DAVIES PRESENTS A COMPELLING CASE.' EXPRESS
In this thrilling book, Wynne Weston-Davies, qualified surgeon and Mary Kelly's great-nephew, delves into the inscrutable history behind Jack the Ripper's fifth and final victim. Exploring the family connection and her journey from Wales to the East End of London, he reveals how the elusive Mary Kelly became wholly intertwined with the enigma of her legendary killer.
An utterly original investigation into how a vivacious party girl came to marry a mild-mannered journalist, some twenty years her senior, and ended up the last but most significant victim of his gruesome, twelve-week killing spree.
