Nickell was one of the five members of the Rendell team commissioned by Warner (orginally supposed to be the U.S publisher) to "investigate" the Diary and help them break their contract after the Washington Post ran a negative article in July of 1993. Interestingly, the two scientists on the team (Kurantz and McNeil) actually said they found nothing inconsistent with the document being old. (I am simplifying a great deal.)

Despite this Rendell decided it was a forgery based "on the evidence presented in the book", the book being Harrison's not the Diary.

Ain't nothing clear cut in this infernal story.

Just so we understand the quality of resume we are talking about when it comes to "debunkers" of the Maybrick Diary:

Nickell has worked professionally as a stage magician, carnival pitchman, private detective, blackjack dealer, riverboat manager, university instructor, author, and paranormal investigator, as well as listing over 200 "personas" on his website.
Nickell has evaluated manuscripts and written works for authenticity, including the purported diary of Jack the Ripper (which he helped to reveal as a forgery), and Hannah Crafts' mid-nineteenth century novel The Bondwoman's Narrative, whose authenticity he supported.

I didn't realize Joe Nickell worked on the Maybrick Diary.

I've read several of his books and articles, and I recommend them. He has a way of making complex claims/situations into simple explanations, and he's nice about it.

His ghost debunking work is top notch. I highly recommend it.
