Paul Worsley QC, for 10 years a judge at the Old Bailey, revisits one of the most remarkable murder cases to be found in the annals of the Criminal Courts of England. This is a vintage whodunit, first in the Judge's Tales series and set at a crossroads in time when for the first time the Media were co-opted to run a killer to ground.
The tale is told verbatim by witnesses as the author gets inside the mind of the outspoken but irresolute judge in the case, Mr Justice Grantham. The result is as compelling today as it is definitive of the era in which the murder was committed.
