The Postcard Murder Summary

The Postcard Murder: A Judge's Tale by Paul Worsley QC

Paul Worsley QC, for 10 years a judge at the Old Bailey, revisits one of the most remarkable murder cases to be found in the annals of the Criminal Courts of England. This is a vintage whodunit, first in the Judge's Tales series and set at a crossroads in time when for the first time the Media were co-opted to run a killer to ground. The tale is told verbatim by witnesses as the author gets inside the mind of the outspoken but irresolute judge in the case, Mr Justice Grantham. The result is as compelling today as it is definitive of the era in which the murder was committed.

The Postcard Murder Reviews

'An enthralling account of human frailty and forensic analysis.' Nicholas Hilliard, Recorder of London 'An absolute must for any lover of crime stories...keeps the reader guessing throughout.' William Clegg, author of Under the Wig 'This is the first in a new series, loved the writing style... Very happy to recommend this on to others.' Fiona Sharp, Waterstones Durham 'A fascinating book that draws you into the murky underworld of Edwardian London and the high drama of a capital trial, meticulously researched and true to the evidence, as well as being a rattling good yarn.' Tom Tyson, 'If you're after something rather gritty to sink your teeth into this winter, look no further, as The Postcard Murder is the one for you! ...You end up taking on the role of a 13th juror without possibly even realising it. Trust me when I say this; you will form your own opinions about the crime, and there is a high chance that you will do what I did and end up shouting blue murder... I am so excited to read more from Paul Worsley.' The Writing Garnet
