Entre les mois d'août et novembre 1888, au moins sept femmes furent assassinées à Londres dans le quartier de Whitechapel. La nature effroyable de ces meurtres provoqua la panique et la terreur dans l'East End, et donna naissance au surnom qui allait devenir synonyme de serial Biller Jack l'Eventreur. Pendant cent quinze ans, ces meurtres ont constitué une des plus grandes énigmes criminelles du monde. C'est lors d'une visite à Scotland Yard, en mai 2001, que Patricia Cornwell s'est intéressée à " l'affaire " Jack l'Éventreur et à la personnalité ambiguë et inquiétante de Walter Sickert, un peintre impressionniste britannique célèbre à la fin du XIXe siècle. Très vite, elle a eu l'intime conviction que Sickert et l'Eventreur ne faisaient qu'un. Après avoir mis en piste les plus fins enquêteurs et experts en médecine légale, l'auteur nous livre les résultats de son enquête et, comme un véritable témoin à charge, présente ses preuves. Grâce à sa connaissance des enquêtes criminelles, à l'étendue de sa documentation et à ses talents de romancière, Patricia Cornwell reconstitue l'arrière-plan de cette sinistre affaire l'Angleterre à l'époque victorienne. Patricia Cornwell réussit un véritable thriller, avec une parfaite maîtrise et une conviction sans faille.
