"During a dark night in December 1811, in London's East End, a tradesman, his young wife, sleeping baby, and a shop boy were battered to death in their home. Days later, a pub owner, his wife, and a servant were similarly killed. No motive was found." James and police historian Critchley recreate this infamous crime, scouring old records and proving the wrong man was arrested. Then they name the killer who went free."; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall
