    So those particular conclusions are supposedly those of Kennedy Jones and Louis Tracy and not Davis Bullock then? The pair certainly were associated with The Sun newspaper in 1894. It is a real pity there are no references or sources to further research though.
    I do wonder if the uncle and nephew claims were something originally rumoured by those involved with writing the Sun story on Cutbush in 1894. I remember reading an 1890 Sun article recently that seemed to be implying that Superintendent Cutbush's role in organising the Met. police superannuation fund was a bit suspect, or something was a bit untoward about him having sole responsibilty for investing the funds...something like that, I think. Maybe they wanted more dirt on him so had him related to 'Jack the Ripper'.
    I forgot I wrote about this. I may try and research this further. Accusations in the papers about the Superannuation might have caused much stress to CHC too.

    There's a photo of this guy in the new issue of WSJ. I have the book, but have read very little of it myself. Apparently he's a good writer, but had absolutely nothing new to add to our knowledge, and just wanted to see his name on a book. This sets him apart from most recent Ripper writers who are BAD writers, with absolutely nothing new to add to our knowledge, and just want to see their name on a book.

    Yours truly,

    Tom Wescott

    Amazon reviews

    I notice a fresh batch of what can only be described as 'suspicious reviews' appearing on Amazon for this book.

    Naughty reviews

    Lots of what Colonel Bloodnok would refer to as 'Naughty reviews' appearing on Amazon for this book!

    No. Richard didn't reply to my email. Maybe he's away.

    I'll ask Richard. He's the bossman.

    I agree the cover pic could be meant as THC, but only near the end of his life.

    Yes, I think you're right, Robert.
