The Case of the Murderous Dr. Cream: A Presentation by Dean Jobb
Join us for a virtual presentation by bestselling author Dean Jobb as he tells the true story of a Victorian Era monster, the ruthless “Lambeth Poisoner.” Dean Jobb will discuss his new book, The Case of the Murderous Dr. Cream. It is the first complete account of Cream's crimes, his victims, and how Scotland Yard’s best detectives struggled to end his final and deadliest attacks. Jobb's book explores why the authorities in the United States, Canada and Britain failed to identify and stop one of the earliest and most prolific serial killers of modern times. It exposes the flawed police investigations and primitive forensic tests that enabled him to evade suspicion and detection, how he was convicted and imprisoned in the midst of his poisoning spree, and why he was freed to kill again. And it shows how the stifling morality and hypocrisy of Victorian society allowed him to prey on vulnerable and desperate women, many of whom had turned to him for medical help.
