Hardback, 1st edn. It seems impossible that two stranglers of women could both live in the same house, yet this is what the author maintains happened in Notting Hill in 1949. John Reginald Halliday Christie was already a murderer, with a score of at least 2, when Timothy John Evans, much younger, and on the edge of idiocy, came to live with his wife at 10 Rillington Place. Christie is supposed to have framed Evans over the killing of his wife and baby daughter, and was even the principal Crown witness against Evans. The author challenges Timothy Evans' innocence to claim that Evans was guilty of the murders. With careful research the author highlights inaccuracies in previous accounts of the case and builds a convincing and controversial argument. However, as a direct result of threatened legal action by Ludovic Kennedy (which was settled out of court), this first edition of the book was withdrawn from sale, which now makes it an extremely scarce title. Illus., Appendix and Index. 218pp. 8vo. h/back. Review copy with loosely inserted slip. A lovely F. copy in dw.
