Product Description

 
LONDON, 1894. 'I am not a detective, chief constable.' 'No, but you are a poet, a freemason and a man of the world. All useful qualifications for the business in hand.' So says Police Chief Macnaghten to Oscar Wilde, in a Chelsea drawing room in the company of Arthur Conan Doyle. The business they are gathered to discuss is none other than the case of Jack the Ripper, the most notorious murderer in England. The three men have set out to solve one of the world's most famous mysteries - the ultimate truth about the Ripper's identity. Case Closed is Arthur Conan Doyle's account of the events of 1894, the year of Jack the Ripper's return. Based on Oscar Wilde's real-life friendship with Conan Doyle and the extraordinary but little-known fact that the detective in charge of the investigations was Oscar Wilde's neighbour, this is a revelatory and gripping detective story, combining the intrigue of a classic murder mystery with a witty and compelling portrait of one of the greatest characters of the Victorian age.
