Into this environment the 46-year-old writer places her main character, William Sickert, "a painter, an etcher, a student of James McNeill Whistler and a disciple of Edgar Degas," the man Cornwell asserts was the notorious ripper.This isn't the first time someone has pointed a finger in the post-Impressionists direction.According to the Web site "Casebook: Jack the Ripper" Sickert had been implicated as early as the 1970s.However, it was in the early 1990s, "with the release of Jean Overton Fuller's Sickert and the Ripper Crimes, that the peculiar artist became a Ripper suspect in his own right."
...
In Sickert's paintings, Cornwell finds a preoccupation with murder, victimization and death.(Sickert painted a series based on the Camden Town murders and titled one work "Jack the Ripper's Bedroom.") Women depicted in the paintings seem to be modeled on photographs of the Ripper's victims, Cornwell writes.

A former actor, Sickert frequently used disguises, disappeared for long periods, had little regard for others' feelings, was narcissistic and had a superiority complex.He also drew prostitutes and preferred homely women who were either obese or emaciated; all of the Ripper's victims fit this profile.Sickert was born with a fistula for which he had three surgeries to correct.
...
"Of course, it is purely speculative to say that Sickert wandered toward the water to watch.He might not have been in London on this night, although there is nothing on record to prove he wasn't."And so much of the book goes.Based on this kind of circumstantial evidence, it's incredible that Cornwell's title is so brazen.The case is hardly closed.As a piece of fiction spattered with history, biography and criminology, it's a fascinating and compelling read.It creates in perfect detail not only the horrible lives these victimized women lived but also the ineptitude of law enforcement.
