Softcover. SIGNED. With a Foreword by Lord Goldsmith, QC. A spellbinding account of an appalling miscarriage of justice. Charged with the "Cranborne Road murder" of Wavertree widow Alice Rimmer, two Manchester youths were hastily condemned by a Liverpool jury on the police-orchestrated lies of a criminal and two malleable young prostitutes. The author's detailed account of the warped trial, predictable appeal result courtesy of 'hanging judge' Lord Goddard and the whitewash secret inquiry will enrage all who believe in justice. And if the men's prison letters (including from the condemned cells) sometimes make you laugh, they will make you weep far longer. Following his masterful expose of injustice in the 'Cameo Cinema' murder case in 1950s Liverpool contained in his book 'The Cameo Conspiracy', the author now reveals a second police conspiracy - 2yrs later in the same city involving the same senior detective - which this time led to the execution of two young men. In 2011, faced with countless proven contradictions and errors plus substantial previously undisclosed evidence, the Criminal Cases Review Commission unbelievably side-stepped the opportunity to refer this gross injustice to the court of Appeal. So until justice is finally done, Teddy Devlin and Alfie Burns still lie together beneath the staff car park at Walton Prison, their only trace a tiny plaque numbered 55. Illus., Epilogue + Index. 478pp. 8vo. softcover. With tipped-in label SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR. New. A fairly heavy book which may require additional postage.
