Was Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "Jack the Ripper"? Yes, He Was - Watch TV's Travel Channel on June 18th for All the Details

Posted: 2019/06/13

Garden City Park, NY: Be sure to place orders right away for Square One’s controversial True Crime/Biography title The Strange Case of Dr. Doyle: A Journey into Madness & Mayhem.

The book—which puts forth the idea that the notorious “Jack the Ripper” killer who murdered several women in Victorian-era London, England was none other than beloved Sherlock Holmes creator Sir Arthur Conan Doyle—will be featured on the Tuesday, June 18th episode of Travel Channel’s new investigative TV show America Unearthed hosted by Scott Wolter.

Also featured in the TV segment will be the book's authors, son/father writing team and medical doctors Dan Friedman, MD, and Eugene Friedman, MD.

The show's episode—titled “The Ripper Unmasked”—will explore the Friedmans’ incredible yet heavily researched theory in great detail, going so far as to show a connection between the murderous clues left by “Ripper”/Doyle at several murder scenes and the ritual symbolism employed by the secretive Freemason society over many generations.

America Unearthed airs on Tuesday nights nationwide at 10 PM ET/PT on Travel Channel, which is also available throughout the world. Follow @TravelChannel and #AmericaUnearthed on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for more exclusive content and updates—and follow host Scott Wolter on Twitter @realScottWolter.

This book—declared “a gripping and fascinating read” by none other than world-renowned Ripperologist expert Paul Begg—is poised now to become one of the most discussed, debated—and yes, wildly popular books of the year for Ripperologists and Sherlockians alike. Both passionate and precise, The Strange Case of Dr. Doyle brings a fresh new look at an old mystery.

And in addition to the first hardcover edition that is currently available ($29.95 USD, ISBN: 978-0-7570-0348-6), Square One will also be bringing out a paperback version of The Strange Case of Dr. Doyle ($17.95 USD, ISBN: 978-0-7570-0431-5) in this month of June 2019.

The Strange Case of Dr. Doyle is available on, and wherever else books are sold.
