Poisoned at the Priory: The death of Charles Bravo, featuring Agatha Christie's theory - Cold Case Jury (Paperback)Antony M. Brown (author)
- In stock
Cold Case Jury presents its most confounding crime yet: Poisoned at the Priory.
1876. When the newlywed barrister Charles Bravo ingests a rare poison, all evidence suggests suicide.
But in one of the most infamous inquests of all time, a coroner finds it to be an unlawful murder. So, we must ask, what is the truth?
The fourth book in Antony M. Brown's popular Cold Case Jury series picks apart this notorious case that gripped Victorian Britain - and continues to spark debate to this day. Why did Bravo refuse any help, even when going through agonising pain? Was his wife, with her scandalous past, to blame? Or perhaps it was her former lover, eager to remove his usurper for good... or another sinister hand, moving silently?
In Poisoned at the Priory, Brown compiles the evidence and creates dramatic reconstructions of four main theories of how Charles Bravo may have died - including Agatha Christie's solution, in her own words, for the very first time.
But was Christie correct? What's your verdict in this spellbinding case?
