Descrizione del prodotto
In April 1871 a constable walking a beat near Greenwich found a girl dying in the mud - her face cruelly slashed and her brains protruding from her skull. The girl was Maria Jane Clouson a maid for the respectable Pook family and who was pregnant at the time of her death. When the blood-spattered clothes of the 20-year-old Edmund Pook alleged father of the dead girl's unborn child were discovered the matter seemed open and shut. Yet there followed a remarkable legal odyssey full of unexpected twists as the police struggled to build a case. Paul Thomas Murphy recreated the drama of an extraordinary murder case and conclusively identifies the killer's true identity.
