When Naming Jack the Ripper Remember the Piltdown Man Sciance Fraud
A new book - published only yesterday - has become an instant best seller. It's a good book. I like it. However, it is beset by the unresolved unfortunate possibility that science fraud was involved in reaching the author's conclusions. I hope all of my suspicions can be allayed.
I actually want to know that I can feel confident the author has finally and uniquely solved the great science and criminological problem of "who was Jack the Ripper" because I want to toast him and his scientific collaborator. But I can't just yet. To find out why not, please read my critical review here.
