Thanks for that, Laura.
So interesting.
Yes, the Manning case is fascinating.
I have two books of the (British)Notable Trial Series. One is about Dr. Buck Ruxton hugely popular case over in the U.K.
Dr. Ruxton murdered his wife and housemaid in 1935.
It was ground breaking for forensics.
As a matter of fact, I think it was the first time a skull was used with a photograph superimposed over it. Quite something in its day!
and the other is from the Burke and Hare Trial.
What I would give to look at some of Mr. Gregg's books!Goodness!

A Voice of Sanity

There is an interesting discussion of the trial of John Watson Laurie on:

Notably he was sentenced to death by an 8 to 7 vote from a jury of fifteen!


I wouldn't mind betting Marie Elmer and Loretta Lay try to get them, Laura! I have about a dozen of these titles, but I prefer the earlier ones, Madeleine Smith, The Seddons, in between those years, 1857-1911, when the gaslight is low and suspicions swirls around the the houses! I'd like to see them too, Carole!


Oh my God, my soulmate is dead.
