Summary :

From Ingram:

"Bill Sweeney is a down-and-out lush. He is also a top-notch reporter. Aroused by the naked beauty of the Ripper's fourth victim--or near-victim--Sweeney pulls himself together and goes after the killer. As he puts questions and answers together, he finds himself face to face with madness and death."

Known as one of the great alcoholic detective novels. Criticized for unbelievability...how could Sweeney function so well between binges? But that cover! (E.P. Dutton, 1949, a Guilt Edged edition. ISBN refers to the 1995 Carroll and Graf paperback edition.)
