London, 1891. Less than three weeks after the last Whitechapel murder, 25-year-old Thomas Cutbush is committed to Broadmoor Asylum for savage knife attacks on young women in Kennington. The arresting officer, Inspector Race, intrigued by the wealth of connections with the infamou...s unsolved murders in the East End, starts to wonder whether he has, in fact, arrested Jack the Ripper himself. Ignored by his superiors the Inspector eventually decides to take his story to the press. His actions unleash the biggest journalistic investigation of the time with The Sun putting its star reporters on the trail of Thomas Cutbush. The startling new evidence and compelling eyewitness testimonies they discover sets up a sensational scoop. The Man Who Would Be Jack introduces the incredible story of the investigation conducted by The Sun and Inspector Race that, at long last, exposes the truth of one of the world's most tantalising mysteries.
