Frederick Deeming was a murderer, swindler, bigamist and a suspect in the Jack the Ripper killings.
The Devil’s Work is Garry Linnell's new book - a gothic journey into the twisted mind of a serial killer, set in the19th century's dying years when science and religion collided and some of the world’s most influential people believed in an afterlife and an ability to talk to the spirits.
It reveals Deeming’s crime spree that spanned three continents and raises new questions about his role in the Jack the Ripper killings and culminating in his sensational trial, a future Australian Prime Minister, who believed he could also speak to the dead, defended his honour.
