"Jack the Ripper"

(perfect for True Crime fans!)
Garden City Park, NY: Looking for your next excellent True Crime book? Then look no further—Square One's still-controversial backlist title The Strange Case of Dr. Doyle: A Journey into Madness & Mayhem is here.
The book—which suggests that the infamous “Jack the Ripper” and famous Sherlock Holmes creator Sir Arthur Conan Doyle were the same man—is now available in both its original hardcover format ($29.95 USD, ISBN: 978-0-7570-0348-6 ) and also the revised 2019 trade paperback edition ($17.95 USD, ISBN: 978-0-7570-0431-5), which features some excellent new artwork from famed comic book artist John Romita, Jr.).
The book’s authors, medical-doctor son/father team Daniel Friedman and Eugene Friedman, have defended their theory on the Travel Channel’s popular investigative show America Unearthed hosted by Scott Wolter—and world-renowned Ripperologist expert Paul Begg has declared the Friedmans’ book “a gripping and fascinating read.”
