Sold Out. Sorry!

A disturbed adolescent, youthful predator and adult misogynist driven by dark medival and biblical obsessions, Silver's mental universe remained largely hidden from his family, other gangsters and police handlers. 

In this first reconstruction of the life of a dangerous psychopath, Charles van Onselen casts a brilliant light on the most infamous serial killer of all time - for Joseph Silver's darkest secret of all lay in London, in Whitechapel, in the autumn of 1888.
