The popular image of Jack the Ripper as a tall top-hatted and cloaked phantom stalking the dark streets of Whitechapel is not unlike the menacing figure of Bram Stoker's vampire Count Dracula. This historical investigation examines Stoker's sources and discovers an intriguing link between one of the key suspects for the Ripper murders and Stoker's own circle, showing that the Whitechapel murders were likely one of the author's influences but also that he may even have known the murderer.
