Publisher's Summary

It took three tortured days in 1876 for Charles Bravo to die from the poison that burned its way through his body. The subsequent investigation revealed many people with a grudge against the young barrister. The dramatic inquest was covered in sensational detail by the press, but no one was convicted of his murder. Over a century later, James Ruddick draws on new evidence to solve one of the most famous murders in criminal history.

A really compelling listen

This is a really interesting audiobook about a true life case of a Victorian poisoning. It's a classic "whodunnit", and the author clearly presents the evidence in an engaging way that leaves you guessing until the end. This is light enough not to require too much of your attention, but riveting enough to keep you listening until the end. A great listen for while you are driving around in the car - I kept finding excuses to put it on so that I could find out what happened! Highly recommended.
