James Maybrick

The 'Maybrick Diary' which emerged in the early 1990s has sparked a great deal of controversy among certain Ripper circles. Is it a hoax? In all likelihood, yes, it is. Still, the debate continues, the experts argue, and to many, the issue remains hotly contested. We have gathered here a selection of materials to help you make up your own mind on the subject.

Also be sure to check out our Maybrick Diary articles, many penned by some of the top names in Ripperology.
