A Fine unmarked copy with near Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. 180 pages. 11 illustrations. On 7 November 1974, a man and a woman met in a bar in Atlanta, Georgia, USA - the woman was Sandy Fawkes, a British journalist newly arrived in America and ignorant of its ways and its geography. The man was Paul John Knowles who was approaching the end of a 20,000 mile journey through almost every state of America - and wherever he went he killed. The book is the true account of one of the biggest mass-murderers of modern times told by the woman who nearly became his nineteenth victim. As they drove to Florida, Sandy Fawkes was Knowles's lover - but she knew him as Daryl Golden, the quiet well mannered businessman with the smart clothes and fast car. He did tell her that 'I am going to be killed for something that I have done in the past' but not what it was that he had done, only that it was on tapes deposited with his lawyer. 105.

HARRISON, SHIRLEY
The Diary of Jack the Ripper
New York, Hyperion. 1993, First Edition. (ISBN: 1562827049). Hard Cover, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. FIRST US edition, FIRST PRINTING. A Fine unmarked copy with red title on quarter black cloth with black boards. Dustjacket is also Fine and not price clipped. 323 pages. There have been many theories as to the identity of Jack the Ripper and in this book the author believes that the answer may lie in the recently discovered diary found in Liverpool, England which states 'Yours truly, Jack the Ripper'. In it are grisly details of the murders of 1888-1889 and many clues that identify the murderer as James Maybrick, a cotton merchant from Liverpool who died in 1889 of suspected arsenic poisoning. In another celebrated case of the day Maybrick's wife Florie was accused of his murder but, as we read in the diary, his death was probably the result of his arsenic addiction. The diary is the subject of controversy and a report questioning it's authenticity is included along with a rebuttal. Illustrated by photographs and drawings and a facsimile of the diary. 21.
