For more than a century, Dr. Thomas Neill Cream has been listed as
a potential 'Jack the Ripper' suspect. Indeed, he was a sinister
character, preying on the unfortunate souls who were forced to make
a living as streetwalkers in Victorian London, and ultimately led
those poor women to an untimely and torturous death. These crimes
eventually branded him the 'Lambeth Poisoner'. However, during the
time of the heinous Ripper murders, Dr. Cream was incarcerated in
Joliet Prison, Illinois. Over the decades, this fact alone has
caused debate as to whether or not he deserves to be under
suspicion of being the Whitechapel fiend. Was it possible that Dr.
Cream bribed his way out of jail? Perhaps he used a doppelganger to
take his place whilst secretly finding a passage to England with
murder in mind? This fascinating book, told from the standpoint of
Cream himself, explains the twisted logic behind his actions. The
author has done considerable and meticulous research, tracing
Cream's life from his adolescent years in Canada to his last moment
on the gallows at Newgate.
