I bought this book online as it was one of her I hadn't read, but was surprised to see it was part of the Quick Reads series, a series for adult literacy learners.
The story is based on the true story of the murder of Caroline Luard in Kent in 1908. Walters carefully outlines the facts of the case, discusses the rumours of the time, and adds her own supporting characters and plot twist. An interesting mix of true crime and fiction.
