Saucy Jack: Alias Jack the Ripper

by Neil W. Macdonald and K. Scot Macdonald

Sex, mutilation and murder in Victorian England. The world’s first serial killer covered by the mass media. A new phenomenon that has come to plague every major city on earth far too often. In the fall of 1888 the most famous serial killer in history viciously attacked women, leaving crime scenes that forever haunted the minds of those who saw them and filled them with a single-minded resolve to apprehend the murderer. They never did. Although the murderer is known throughout the world as Jack the Ripper, the name he used on some of his taunting notes to the press and police tells far more psychologically about his demented personality: Saucy Jack.

Chippendalescover7coveronlyDeadly Dance: The Chippendales Murders
by K. Scot Macdonald and Patrick MontesDeOca

In 1987 a heroin addict murdered an Emmy Award-winning choreographer in Manhattan. Soon after, a wealthy LA surgeon and his teenaged son were targeted. In 1991, an out-of-work redneck flew to London with cyanide to poison three members of a male exotic dance review.  If the poison didn’t work, he was told to use a hammer to beat them to death. Who was behind these seemingly unrelated horrific crimes? The FBI and the New York Police Department mounted a seven-year international operation to track down the man behind the crimes and bring him to justice.

In 1980s Los Angeles celebrities, desperate housewives and wild bachelorettes converged on one place: Chippendales—and behind it all was arson, the Mob and murder.
