Hardback, 1st edn. Intro' by Ludovic Kennedy. On December 11, 1952, 2 young men, Christopher Craig and Derek Bentley, were found guilty of the murder of a policeman, Sidney Miles. Although the fatal shot was fired by Craig, it was Bentley who was sentenced to be hanged. What took him to the gallows by making him a clear accomplice was his shout to Craig: 'Let him have it Chris' witnessed by 3 policemen. This book calls into question whether the words were ever uttered, the author having found new evidence that the words may never have been said. Illus., Bibliog. and Index. 191pp. 8vo. h/back. F. in F. dw.
