FEDORA AMIS. Jack the Ripper in St. Louis. Five Star Publishing. Hardcover, 287 pages, $25.95, gale.cengage.com/fivestar

Winner of the Mayhaven Award for Fiction and a St. Louis Post-Dispatch bestseller, Jack the Ripper in St. Louis follows the real ripper a decade after his London mutilation of prostitutes. Francis J. Tumblety sits perennially among the top three suspects on Ripperology lists. That selfsame quack doctor with his ghoulish collection died in St. Louis in 1903. But what was he up to in 1897?
