Another book where I'm glad I saw the movie first so I could enjoy it for what it was, instead of being annoyed at the changes.

One of the conspiracy theories of Jack the Ripper laid out in a marvelously researched graphic novel. Very dark and stark with it's black and white line drawings, weaving desperate attempts by the royal family to quash the bad behavior of one of its own, an unbalanced genius, masonic lore and legend and the desperate lifestyle of Whitechapel woman of the 1880s.
