Hardback, 1st edn. In the early hours of August 7, 1985 Essex police received a telephone call from a distraught young man who told them that his sister had run amok with a rifle at the family farm. The young man was Jeremy Bamber. When police broke into White House Farm they found his parents, June and Nevill Bamber, his sister, Sheila Caffell and her 6yr. old twin boys shot dead amidst scenes of mayhem. The nation watched sympathetically as Jeremy - who stood to inherit the family estate - wept. The police accepted his story of 4 murders and a suicide. But other members of the family were suspicious about Jeremy's involvement. A year later, Bamber was convicted of all 5 murders. This is the inside story of the most notorious and fascinating murder case of the 1980s. The author talked to all the leading participants (including Bamber himself) to produce a chilling account of a true life crime that reads like a detective novel. It is the story of a charming but greedy and arrogant man who thought he could get away with murder, and a disastrous police operation. Bamber recently launched yet another appeal for his case to be re-opened, still pleading his innocence. Illus. + Index. 310pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Lightly browned pp., 'scratch' mk. across fore-edge. Vg+ in Vg+ dw. which has v. sl. faded sp. Becoming scarce.
