The author of the bestselling The Suspicions of Mr Whicher turns once again to a true crime: the case of East End brothers Robert and Natty Coombes, who murdered their mother and watched cricket while her body decomposed. Summerscale reveals a riveting story of Victorian crime, punishment and its long aftermath in this absorbing book.

Chaired by Artistic Director Alex Clark.
