About this product
- DescriptionFrom the mysterious death of William Saunders, whose beaten body was discovered in a pond near Penge cricket club, south-east London in 1877, to the spooky demise of Charles Walton whose death is believed to have been linked to witchcraft, unsolved murders litter British history. Authors Bernard Taylor and Stephen Knight, experts in the unravelling of unsolved crimes, re-investigate seven classic cases from the last hundred years. Creating in lively detail the background to each crime and the course of the police investigation, they reveal clues, interpret evidence and describe, where possible, the characters and motives of the alleged killers. In many instances the authors have unearthed previously undiscovered facts-ne more startling than in the case of the lurid Brighton trunk murder of 1934, where Tony Mancini, initially cleared of the time, confesses his guilt to Stephen Knight. Rediscovered and republished in a new paperback edition, Perfect Murder is an eye-opening and gripping read, serving as a stark reminder that justice does t always prevail...
