Jack the Ripper – A Love Story ( Excerpt 42 )

  I think I know who she will be, little ‘Polly’ Nichols, she’s a chronic alcoholic who has already signed her own death warrant. If I don’t take her, she’ll only pickle herself in cheap gin till her liver gives out, much better off dead….definitely!

I’ll find her haunts and seek her out and give her eternal peace, it’s a reasonable offer if you consider the way that she lives, selling herself for a tot of cheap gin. That’s no way to live, much better to be dead and returned from whence she came.

But much as I would enjoy ridding the earth of yet another of Mary’s friends. I wasn’t about to plunge headlong in to a killing spree without very careful preparation.

The reason that most criminals fail is that they take opportunity’s when offered, whether it be a murder, mugging or just plain burglary, they never plan or at least not carefully. They always consider the prize, never the consequences if and when they are caught.

I have no intention of being caught by the police or anyone else. I am not a career criminal. I am a physician, by the taking of five lives, I can help eradicate several sexually transmitted diseases. Not only that but I will be sending out a very clear message. Keep these women off our streets!

Now I am not trying to set myself up as some kind of moral crusader, but I, as the local Doctor am more than conversant with the diseases these women carry.

      1. 😂😂 I was also feeling for Jean Baptiste Grenouille of The Perfume, by the way…. but maybe the English charms of Ben Wishaw have something to do with it 😂😂

  1. Have patience, I’ve not written it yet Lol, these final chapters are crucial to the true story so I am having to fall back on my research to make sure I make them as accurate as possible!
