A true story of murder,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Musical Milkman Murder - In the idyllic country village used to film Midsomer Murders, it was the real-life murder story that shocked 1920 Britain (Kindle Edition)
This book is written by a chap with an oblique connection to the murder. I didn't find it a rivetting read. Falk tells the story from information gleaned from newspaper articles, court reports and written evidence submitted to the court at the time. He tends to stray off the main tale at times which seemed to me to be just 'padding' . I did like the fact that he asked a modern barrister to give his judgement of the evidence, verdict and judge's summing up. The trial is famous as the first which included women in the jury.
