Jack the Ripper – A Love Story ( Excerpt)

  As I sit in solitude, staring at this, the four walls of my self imposed prison, I can but reflect on the circumstances that led me here.

Would a sane man, Yes! I do believe myself to be sane, for the alternative is utterly unthinkable. I confess, dear reader, that I have done terrible things, but before you condemn me to the hell that I no doubt deserve.

Please give me the benefit of hearing my account of the heinous crimes that I, myself perpetrated, Please hear my defence? for I believe I may indeed have one? We all of us have a story, I plead with you! Hear mine!

My health is rapidly deteriorating and I feel the need to set straight the record, before I shed this mortal coil and consign myself forever to the waiting arms of Morpheus.

As my impending doom approaches, I feel the need to justify myself. I admit to doing terrible things. Crimes against humanity. Murder most foul!

But although I readily admit to being the perpetrator of these crimes, I feel that I am the victim of my own folly. The victim of my own lust.

    1. Possibly! even serial killers have their moments of humanity. In the version I am writing he is a man with all the human frailties
      who is twice crossed in love. This eventually causes him to seek his revenge. I am running another chapter on Wednesday which may explain a little more.
      Thank you for your interest.

      Regards Malkie

  1. I have read several so called jack exposures that amounted to nothing. so I decided to do my own fictional account which will probably be as believable as others I have read. There will be another chapter on Wednesday.

    1. Enjoying these teasers (1 and 2). Having just netflixed the entire BBC Ripper Street Series, I find this subject is nothing, if not intriguing. Good luck in your quest. You definitely have lured us in, so far!

      1. I am busy working on the book of the same, it is fictional but probably likely to be as near to the truth as some of the so called scholarly accounts that I have read. Thank you for your support!

    1. Hello Simi,
      thank you so much for the compliment, so many books have been written about Jack, but about the deeds not the man.
      I am trying to portray him as man first,monster second, It will be honest and although fictional just possibly as close as you will get to the real occurrences, Enjoy !!
