Hardback. Reissue. Featuring : The Murder of Lord William Russell. The accused: Francois Benjamin Courvoisier and the Murder of Julia Wallace. The accused: William Herbert Wallace. When Wallace was brought to trial for the murder of his wife in 1931, certain peculiarities of the crime recalled the killing of Lord William Russell by his young Swiss valet almost a century earlier. In 1840 the underlying cause had been money, but in the case of Julia Wallace, the motive may well have been more subtle than any yet suggested. By the same painstaking research which made her an acknowledged expert in this field, the author succeeded in discovering fresh facts concerning Wallace's life and career which enabled her to throw new light on the case. With Appendix and Maps + Index. 268pp. 8vo. h/back. Vg+ in Vg. pcdw.
