As a writer on capital punishment, and our judicial system at the time, I found this book, "most of my murders", very interesting, especially the Bentley case. (Derek Bentley was hanged in 1953) it was this case where the Establishment wasn't interested in justice, they wanted revenge. A policeman had been shot. Christopher Craig was too young to hang. In my view, had it been a night watchman who had been shot, both would probably have been given 10 years. it wasn't until 1998 that the truth came out. It was proved that the trial judge held back vital evidence from the defence, and the police had lied. In short, Bentley was murdered by the State! Then of course there were others. Timothy Evans for example. john Parris the author puts everything into perspective, and as Albert Pierrepoint wrote in his autobiography. "Hanging proved nothing and it wasn't a deterrent". this is a book that reveals our shocking judicial system at that time, and we still have the evidence that the police still lie and cover up the truth.
