A vivid examination into the unsolved murder case that shocked Victorian Albion, by the ghost of the Newly York Times Notable Book Shooting Victoria. On April 26th, 1871, a law enforcement constable walking one of London’s faraway beats stumbled upon a mistreat young lady kneeling in the gummy drive, her face smashed and battered. The officer gaped in horror as the woman stretched out her hand to him, collapsed in the mud, muttered “let me die,” and slipped into a stupor. Five days later, she died, her identity still unknown. Within hours of her sighting, keep tallies of Metropolitan Mounties were involved in the examination, while Scotland Yard sent one of its top prosecutors to lead it. On the period of her afterlife, the law enforcement discovered the young lady's identity: Jane Mare Clouson, a sixteen-year-old servant to the Pooks, a respectable Greenwich tribe. Hours later, they arrested her wheel's descendant, twenty-year-old Edmund, for her murder. An saga novel of law and disorder, Pretty Jane and the Viper of Kidbrooke Drive is the story of a criminal case conducted at the time of the emergence of modern forensic art. It is the story of the majesty–and the travesty–of the nineteenth-century British legal system: the zealous inspectors determined to convict young Pook, and the remarkable lawyer equally determined to obtain his letting off by any techniques possible. At the vascular organ of this story are the alleged killer and his alleged fatality: Edmund Pook, the young Victorian nobleman caught up in a legal nightmare, and Jane Mare Clouson, the young maid whose hard plight before her tragic afterlife serves as a bracing corrective to Downton Abbey delusions about the maintains of British servants. Using an abundant collection of primary sources, Paul Thomas Fool creates a gripping fiction of the law enforcement procedural and the ensuing legal drama, with its many twists and turns, from the sighting of the body until the final judgement–and beyond. For while the murder of Jane Clouson has for nearly one hundred and quinquagenarian lifetimes remained unsolved, much of the documentation remains, and Fool, applying contemporary forensic ways to this Victorian cold case, reveals definitively the identity of Jane Clouson's murderer–and provides the resolution that Jane's angry supporters long ago challenge. 8 numbers of B&W photographs.

Pretty Jane and the Viper of Kidbrooke Lane: A True Story of Victorian Law and Disorder: The Unsolved Murder that Shocked Victorian England

Chick-Lit is not what I usually read. I never watched "Sex and the City", "Disclosures of a Shopaholic" does not seem like my favorite. Why then, did I pick up this preengage? I saw a assess once that said it was a fun read. I was in the condition for fun... I read this preengage in one 24 hour end (that included sleeping and working) and it was fun. I liked it, it made me laugh. I'm not sure if it turned the spate for me....not sure if I'm a huge chick-lit fan, but it was a nice diminish of velocity. Hint...there were a lot of "f" words, which I didn't think the author really needed.
