Whole Story Quest released the audiobook of The Ripper Deception today – 132 years since Mary Kelly met her end in Millers Court. On 19th November 1888, pallbearers carried Mary, who was only 25 when she died, from St Leonard’s Church in Shoreditch to The Roman Catholic Cemetery in Leytonstone. Her touching stone inscription read:

IN LOVING MEMORY OF MARIE JEANETTE KELLY, NONE BUT THE LONELY HEARTS CAN KNOW MY SADNESS, LOVE LIVES FOREVER.

The Ripper Deception is mystery fiction based on fact and with an unusual twist. Much research went into this book, and my thoughts lie with Mary and the other victims of Jack the Ripper trying to make the best of the terrible poverty, disease and violence in the Victorian East End.

    This is a case that I have made a particular study of. I shall be interested to read this one.

      I hope it doesn’t disappoint, but I took a lot of artistic licence with this one and it’s fair to say that it’s based ‘loosely’ on the Ripper story. Someone with a detailed knowledge of the case may find it unlikely, though hopefully still a good yarn.

      1. Stewart P Evans says:

        I’m sure it won’t, as you know there are many fictional treatments on the case, many of which are entertaining. Although all my books on the case are factual, I still enjoy reading the fictional books.
