Antonia Alexander is a direct descendant of Mary Kelly, the Ripper's final victim. Her grandmother, also Mary, has now decided for the first time to tell the family's story. After rummaging through her grandmother's belongings, Mary found a small wooden box containing Mary Kelly's locket. The locket contained a picture of a man; a man she had always thought was her great-grandfather. Now she realises that the photo in the locket is that of Sir John Williams. The Fifth Victim reveals the compelling story of Mary Kelly and her relationship with the most recent suspect. There were stories told to her by her grandmother; stories about Mary Kelly and her affair with a prominent doctor by the name of John Williams; stories that she had kept to herself until now. This is possibly the last chance she has to tell the world what she knows; what really happened to Mary Kelly...her great-grandmother. Prior to this book no one had found any evidence linking Mary Kelly to the prime suspect John Williams, but Antonia has exclusive access to documents and files belonging to Williams' great-nephew. This is the incredible true story of the Ripper's final murder.
