Jacob Jones is a respectable clerk at the Crystal Palace Company, with a pretty young bride and a delightful new home in Islington. Yet, when his wife is found murdered, everything points to his guilt, even a handwritten confession.
The police discover Jacob Jones's diary, which reveals a litany of secrets. They learn of a husband trying to bury his sordid past; a wife afflicted by a deep personal tragedy; an unlikely love affair that leads to a fatal conclusion.
Is Jones' diary a confession? An attempt to exonerate himself? A study in madness?
Read the police investigation — read the diary itself — and uncover the truth.
