On the August bank holiday, 1948, Joan Woodhouse left her lodgings in London to visit the family home in Barnsley. She never arrived. Her body was discovered in the grounds of the Duke of Norfolk’s Arundel Castle in Sussex. Joan had been raped and strangled. This book charts the quest for justice. With access to family and police files, Martin Knight attempts to establish whether an innocent suspect was vindicated or a guilty man swerved the gallows.
