Hardback. Notable British Trials Series No. 90. SIGNED, NUMBERED LIMITED EDITION (to 25). The crime of Frederick and Maria Manning in 1849 has all the elements of a classic: the brutal cold-blooded murder of a friend for money; the discovery of a buried decomposing corpse; the escape of the couple and dramatic pursuit and capture by the police. It was a national sensation which culminated in the last public double hanging of a husband and wife, an event which shocked Charles Dickens and played a part in the later abolition of public executions. But one mystery remains both Frederick and Maria asserted their innocence, each claiming that the other alone was guilty. Was either of them telling the truth? This new examination of the case offers a compelling resolution. Illus. With Introduction, Appendix and Index. 275pp. 8vo. h/back. With tipped-in SIGNED AND NUMBERED BOOKPLATE. New in dw.
