Jack the Ripper: Tabloid Killer
Thanks to his gruesome deeds and chilling nickname, ‘Jack the Ripper’ is the most famous serial killer in history. And he was certainly the first to cause a media sensation when he terrorised the streets of East London back in 1888.
Former-tabloid editor Kelvin MacKenzie uncovers startling documentary evidence and identifies a new set of suspects; the crooked journalists who faked evidence, printed fantasy and mislead the police investigation, all to keep the Ripper murders on their front pages.
Re-examining the case with Historian Andrew Cook, Kelvin separates the shocking facts from the newspaper fiction – and, for the first time ever, nails the man who invented ‘Jack the Ripper’.
