“Calling All Amateur Maigrets – How Good A Detective Are You?”
Master Detective December 2013
“Calling All Amateur Maigrets – How Good A Detective Are You?” To encourage more of a response from the public at the time of the murder of Edith Gleave, the police in Oldham and Stockport issued questionnaires with that tantalising heading. The Strange Case Of The Two Londoners, the last case in the series Unsolved Murders Of The 1960s.
Just when and what was the first railway murder? 1856? 1864? Neither, for author Matthew Spicer has discovered a railway murder in Ireland in 1847. Is this now the definitive date or can one of our astute readers come up with an earlier case?
Finally, if you’re looking for a unique gift to surprise and delight the crime buff in your family then please look at our books, mugs, T –shirts, notepads, DVDs – all available on our website.
