Doctor Crippen's murder of his wife, aided and abetted by his
mistress Ethel Le Neve, ranks among one of the most notorious
crimes of the twentieth century and has earned Crippen a place in
the gruesome Chamber of Horrors. Here, Richard Gordon skillfully
recreates the chilling atmosphere of the murder--the remains found
under the cellar floor, the head still missing to this day,
Crippen's transatlantic capture and arrest--and how it shook
respectable society to the core. Using this infamous character as
his case study, Gordon also reveals the conflicting suavity and
savagery of the Edwardian age.
