Fictionalized account of Jack the Ripper: The Final Solution, a book written by Stephen Knight, which was first published in 1976.

It proposed a solution to five murders in Victorian London that were blamed on an unidentified serial killer known as "Jack the Ripper".  In an attempt to solve the mystery, Knight presented an elaborate conspiracy theory involving the British royal family, freemasonry and the painter Walter Sickert.

  • SPOILER: He concluded that the victims were murdered to cover up a secret marriage between the second-in-line to the throne, Prince Albert Victor, Duke of Clarence and Avondale, and Annie Elizabeth Crook, a working class girl.
