Conan Doyle and the Parson

For devotees of true-life crime, there is a non-fiction account of the George Edalji case published by Pegasus Elliot Mackenzie, “Conan Doyle and the Parson’s Son: The George Edalji Case.”


Researched and written by Gordon Weaver, is the only nonfictional account of the George Edalji miscarriage of justice case.


This book goes behind the scenes to explore the complex issues that surround the harassment of the Edalji family and the conviction and trial of George Edalji.


The wealth of Home Office documentation held at the UK’s National Archives provides additional dimensions to what in fact was the case that changed the face of English law.


It's an invaluable read for students of many subjects, for lovers of mystery and for those who believe that fact can be stranger than fiction. For a synopsis visit the www.theplebeian.net.
