Hardback. These are true stories of instances when slogans like "innocent until proven guilty" and "justice triumphs" didn't work, and innocent people suffered because of prejudice, public opinion, police incompetence, inadequate defence, or some other insufficient reason. Whatever the cause, these unfortunate men and women experienced a nightmare of investigations, public notoriety, court trial, and, for the majority, prison terms. As shocking as the cases are, they would have been even more tragic were it not for the efforts of courageous men who, refusing to accept the courts' findings, used their own talents - and sometimes their money - to ferret out the truth and set innocent men free. They were policemen, private detectives, lawyers and authors. Erle Stanley Gardner is represented in these pages, and two interesting cases, investigated by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle are included. Featuring amongst others : De Marigny/Schindler; Adolf Beck/George R. Sims; George Edalji/Conan Doyle; Oscar Slater/Conan Doyle; Silas Rogers/Erle Stanley Gardner; Clarence Gilmore Boggie/Erle Stanley Gardner + many more. 272pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Vg.
