Scandal at the Savoy: The Infamous 1920's Murder Case Andrew Rose
On a stiflingly hot July night in 1923, a 22 year-old millionaire Egyptian playboy was shot dead by his beautiful French wife at the Savoy Hotel in London. The notoriety surrounding the couple, set against the backdrop of this luxurious hotel, provoked a welter of publicity and speculation which filled the papers for months. The author draws on his long experience at the Criminal Bar to examine the facts behind the case, revealing much that the judge and jury never knew about Madame Fahmy and her young husband, whose bisexuality lay at the heart of the tragedy. The author is the first member of the public to have been granted access to the police file on the case.
