Description

In 1860, Mary Emsley, a 70-year-old landlady, was found dead in her own home; killed by a blow to the back of her head. What followed was a murder case that gripped the nation.

This murder is the frame for Mile End Murder; newspapers at the time were fascinated and furiously debated the victim’s character, potential suspects, and the possible motives. There were several twists and dramatic discoveries during the police investigation, which would eventually give way to one of the last public executions at Newgate.

Years later the case caught the attention of Arthur Conan Doyle, who was convinced that the wrong man had been convicted and executed. In The Mile End Murder, bestselling author Sinclair will investigate the case, expertly searching through archives to present the evidence in this intriguing case. 

The author

Sinclair McKay is author of the bestselling The Secret Life of Bletchley Park and The Secret Listeners for Aurum, as well as histories of Hammer films, the James Bond films, and the pastime of rambling. He lives in London.
