Is George Stoner still being bedevilled - fifty-three years after the event - for a murder he did not commit? Did he admit I a crime committed by the woman he loved from a misplaced sense of honour? The eminent lawyer Sir David Napley provides an exciting and original reassessment of the dramatic events which resulted in the trial in 1935 of middle-aged Alma Rattenbury and her eighteen-year-old chauffeur lover for the murder of her sixty-seven-year-old husband. With 8 pages of photographs. Signed by the author on the title page, "Michael, sincerely. David Napley. 1988". 226pp. Size: 8vo Demy (8½" x 5½")
