The Mile End Murder

The case Conan Doyle couldn’t solve: discover 'whodunnit' as a 150-year-old crime is solved in a gripping study of the police inquiry, early forensics and wayward crime reporting. The murder of Mary Emsley in 1860 was a veritable locked room mystery, with an abundance of suspects. During the police investigation there were several twists and dramatic discoveries, with suspicion falling in turn upon disgruntled step-children concerned about their inheritance, a nephew of ‘bad character’ and a trusted employee, who had been a police officer and spy until he was sent to prison for robbery. Eventually, the case led to a sensational public trial that was dominated by surprise revelations and shock witnesses, before climaxing with one of the final public executions at Newgate. But was an innocent man executed? Arthur Conan Doyle believed that was the case but was never able to find the killer.

This type of book is definitely on my list of subjects. Haven’t started it yet but I’m sure it will be good. My best friend has already put her request in to borrow it after I’ve read it.
