Christine Ward-Agius was born in Adelaide, South Australia, and is a researcher and working artist. She worked for many years in the welfare sector, gaining particular experience in a program designed to help empower women to escape poverty by means of education and employment. The insight gained from this area of work gave Christine an added interest while assisting her partner Jonathan Hainsworth in writing his first book on Jack the Ripper. Her patient detective work in the Druitt family archives, newspaper articles held in the British Library, and the records of English public schools unearthed previously unseen documentary and photographic evidence pointing clearly at Montague Druitt as the solution to the Whitechapel murders.
