The Autobiography of Jack the Ripper...

Is it Fact or Fiction? You Decide.

In 2008, a manuscript discovered in the estate of a beloved British children’s book author allegedly held the confession to one of the greatest unsolved cases in history—the case of Jack the Ripper. The document introduces a new suspect—James Willoughby Carnac—who details with chilling accuracy his murder spree in London’s Whitechapel district in 1888, presents his motive for the crimes, and for the first time ever, a reason the killings stopped so suddenly.

how much is fact, fiction, conjecture?
Whatever it is - it is fascinating.

Well, the book is a Fiction book....though shelved with True Crime stories......gave it to my mom to read then I will read it, so far she says it is really fascinating and it is like this person knew the entire area.......but what if Beaman was the author vs Carnac - is he a real person? Can't wait to see if he gives his birthdate to look him up online~! What if Beaman wrote such a gastly book he withdrew pages himself, after all he states that but he died before it was published.......so what became of those pages - perhaps Allan Hicken who purchased it from the Estate of Beaman knows the truth?
