Product description

Review

I read this with great enjoyment. The author has produced a forensically detailed examination of a murder with a witty picture of the social world of the gentry at the end of the eighteenth century. Her eye and ear for the period are unerring. A delight. (Judith Flanders Author of 'The Invention of Murder')

A masterpiece of well-founded suspicions based on first-hand evidence (Iain Finlayson The Times)

Highly readable ... gripping (Daily Express)

A fascinating account of a Georgian cause celebre ... just as Kate Summerscale did brilliantly in The Suspicions of Mr Whicher, Cooke focuses on legal procedure and forensic evidence to gripping effect (Kathryn Hughes Mail on Sunday)

Book Description

A shocking tale of greed and family betrayal
