This book is a record of the inquests, Magistrate Court hearing, and Supreme Court Trial of one of New Zealand's most notorious women. The information has been compiled mainly from contemporary newspaper reports, but the author has also researched other records and books to present a story not of brilliant detective work, or gruesome horror, but one of painstaking police work that uncovered the circumstances and tragic deaths of at least 3 children, and produced the evidence necessary to convict and condemn Minnie Dean to the gallows. Illus. 82pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. F. in sl. frayed and worn Nr. Vg. dw.
