Under lock and key in the British Library are eleven volumes of the writings of a Victorian gentleman, know only as 'Walter'. An abridged version of his testimony, today considered a pornographic classic, was published some forty years ago as My Secret Life. What the abridgement left out was the author's cruel and criminal activities, aling with all the clues that identify him.
Several distinguished writers, from Stephen Knight to Patricia Cornwell, claim to have unmasked Jack the Ripper. But no one has found a confession - until now. In the British Library archives, the author reveals his intimate acquaintance with the prostitutes who had been the Ripper's victims. Although 'Walter' could not confess openly or even identify himself, he was in fact staking his claim as the world's first serial killer, Jack the Ripper. Yet the question remains - who was Walter? That question is answer here.
