Jack the Ripper Files from the House of Mystery Show

 

 

NEIL R. STOREY

 

An investigation of the evidence for links between Dracula and Jack the Ripper, containing original research and previously unpublished and rare materials/illustrations—as well as an evocative exploration of the theater and esoteric scene in 1880s London

Since its publication in 1897, there have been suggestions that the fictional exploits of Dracula were more closely associated with Jack the Ripper than a Transylvanian Count. Historian Neil Storey provides the first British-based investigation of the sources used by Stoker and paints an evocative portrait of Stoker, his influences, friends, and the London he knew in the late 19th century. Among Stoker's group of friends, however, were dark shadows. Storey explores how Stoker created Dracula out of the climate of fear that surrounded the Jack the Ripper murders in 1888. Add to this potent combination the notion that Stoker may have known Jack the Ripper personally and hidden the clues to this terrible knowledge in his book. The premise is seductive and connects some of the giants of stage and literature of late Victorian Britain. Having gained unprecedented access to the unique archive of one of Stoker's most respected friends and the dedicatee of Dracula, Storey sheds new light on both Stoker and Dracula, and reveals startling new insights into the links between Stoker's creation and the most infamous murderer of all time.

Would Sherlock Holmes be able to catch Jack the Ripper?

Everyone knows the name of Sherlock Holmes - the fictional detective created by Arthur Conan Doyle with his superhuman powers of observation and unbeatable methodology for solving crimes. But could his 1800's philosophy really work in the modern world to solve genuine crimes?

That's the very question that a real-life US-based private detective asked himself before embarking on the adventure of a lifetime by stepping into Holmes' shoes and using his mindset to solve real crimes. So effective was this method that he decided to turn his attention to the greatest set of crimes known in history - the brutal murders perpetrated by the criminal who came to be known as Jack the Ripper.

The author, along with a team of three of the world's top forensic scientists and criminologists, Dr. Michael M. Baden, Dr. Cyril H. Wecht and Dr. Henry C. Lee, has convincingly solved the infamous Jack the Ripper murders of 1888 London - arguably the world's most talked-about unsolved murder mystery. But their true-life resolution of the case is presented here in the form of a Sherlock Holmes novel, painstakingly penned faithfully in the style of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. In it, the author - who actually used Holmes' methods to uncover the killers' identity - explains exactly how the crimes were committed and by whom, all in the form of a fast-paced thriller featuring the world's most beloved detective along with Dr. Watson, from whose point-of-view most of the tale is told. Once the reader has finally been clued in on the final solution, the murders are then revisited from the killers' perspective.The story opens in the year 2017 with the sealed box of Holmes' most controversial cases being opened by Watson's great grandson Jacob, and among those cases is that of London's Ripper murders that took place in what was then and has forever after been known as the "Autumn of Terror." Jacob is shocked to learn the true story, as well as the reasons Holmes deemed the case's explosive resolution too shocking and incendiary to have been revealed to the public in Victorian England and so to be sealed "entombed in a tin box" for 125 years, as were a number of other cases that are mentioned in some of Doyle's Holmes stories. Along the way, the actual facts of the case and the evidence that led Randy and his team to the real killer will be revealed to the reader through Holmes' investigative methods
