      My first book The Rotherham Trunk Murder was written after I uncovered a miscarriage of justice a man hanged for a crime he did not commit.My second book Edwin, Adelaide and George tells the bizarre story of Adelaide Bartlett, her husband Edwin and her lover George This Victorian murder mystery has puzzled everyone for over a hundred years, but having had access to the full transcript of Adelaide s 6 day trial at The Old Bailey I put forward a new theory to explain the mystery.

    1. This book deals with the murder in 1912 of two little girls. One was ten years old (and had been raped recently) and her cousin was seven. Both had had their throats cut.

Author rec [...]

The author helps the reader to come to their own conclusions as to whether this was a huge miscarriage of justice, whether local rumours circulating t [...]
