In 1902 Detective Inspector George Godley arrested mild-mannered pub landlord George Chapman on suspicion of poisoning his mistress. Former Chief Inspector Frederick Abberline, who had hunted Jack the Ripper unsuccessfully fourteen years previously, told Godley: ‘You’ve got Jack the Ripper at last!’

As DI Godley investigated Chapman, he gradually uncovered the man’s secret past. Born Seweryn Klosowski, he had lived in the East End of London during the Ripper killings of 1888, and this was his third murder...
