The Corpus Christi Caller-Times Features Richard A. Patterson

The Corpus Christi Caller-Times, a Texan newspaper with a daily readership of around 55,000, has featured our fantastic author Richard A. Patterson. The author's historical book, 'Jack the Ripper, The Works of Francis Thompson', is an enthralling book; read more about it HERE.

Below is an extract from the article:

'This week, “Texana Reads” is taking a side trip to not so jolly ol’ Victorian England where the fog rolls in with a gray blanket of soot from chimney tops and pollution from nearby factories.

Specifically, we are in the Whitechapel District in the East of End of London in the late 1880s. At night, the place is darker than a moonless summer night in the West Texas desert. But the shrill and plaintive wail of a lonely coyote is not heard here. Instead, it is the shrill of women being murdered that echoes through the narrow streets and concrete prison that keeps this place of London isolated from mainstream society.

It is the land of the infamous Jack the Ripper. And, there is a Corpus Christi, Texas twist to the story.'
