Ted Stratton Book #3 2010
It is winter, 1950, in a dingy part of London. John Davies confesses to
strangling his wife and baby daughter, and for DI Ted Stratton of West End
Central, it promises to be a straightforward case. When Davies recants,
blaming respectable neighbour, Norman Backhouse, for the crimes, nobody,
including Stratton, sees any reason to believe him. Davies is convicted and
hanged, but later, after a series of gruesome discoveries, Stratton begins
to suspect that there has been a terrible miscarriage of justice.
Her marriage in tatters, ex-MI5 agent Diana Calthrop is determined to start
a new life, but despite a promising beginning, she soon finds herself in
trouble both financially and emotionally. And with a seemingly unstoppable
killer of women on the loose, she is very vulnerable indeed. Based on the
true story of the two most controversial murder trials of the 1950s and set
against the backdrop of a country still scarred by war, "A Capital Crime"
is a story of guilt, longing, uncertainty and torment.
