4.0 out of 5 stars mystery remains !, 16 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Life and Death of Lord Erroll: The Truth Behind the Happy Valley Murder (Paperback)
Anyone who has read "white mischief" by james fox ,would be interested in this book, this gives another side Joss Hay the murder victim, who was portrayed as a "bounder" and a womanizer and lounge lizard in most other books on the subject. The book starts of slowly and spend a lot of time telling us about the family history of the Errolls, not surprisingly this was written with the cooperation of his family who obviously were agrieved by the besmirching of the family name.This shows that Lord Erroll was actually a very hard worker and involved in lots of planning and commitees. When the second world war broke out ,the author has a theory the murder was a political assassination due to the Lord's war work. However as with many of the theories there can be no concrete proof of this , documents were found to be missing, people in the know have passed away many years ago, secret agents went under code names and obviously no one knew they were secret agents ! The theory is plausible but so are many of the others who also claim to have credible witnesses, so the mystery in my mind remains and we are now never going to find the killer, or is it just simply yes it was the husband of his last mistress. if you are interested in Britains presence in kenya this gives a good background and if you are interested in the murder gives a valid theory.
