Within a span of five years, Klosowski took on three women as his wives and lethally poisoned each with deadly doses of antimony.This study of Klosowskis murders of Mary Spink, Elizabeth Bessie Taylor, and Maud Marsh includes extensive accounts of the individual crimes, the accompanying investigations, and Klosowskis conviction and execution. The final chapter examines intense police and media speculation that Klosowski may also have been the unidentified serial killer Jack the Ripper, citing period news articles and more recent developments in the notorious case. One appendix provides a detailed timeline of Klosowskis poison period from 1892 to 1903.
