PORTRAIT OF A KILLER Jack the Ripper Case Closed

by | Read by Kate Reading

History • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2002

The creator of crime-solving Medical Examiner Kay Scarpetta takes a detour in this nonfiction offering to argue that real-life artist Walter Sickert was England's Jack the Ripper. Using new technology, Cornwall says the Ripper's writings match those of the British actor turned painter. Even DNA samples of the spit on the Ripper's postage stamps mirror Sickert's. While no one will ever know for sure, Kate Reading's narration helps punctuate the author's argument. She speaks with such authority that one is convinced by the second chapter. Nonetheless, one wants to hear every point Cornwall makes. A.L.H. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 03]
