Fine cloth copy in an equally fine dw, now mylar-sleeved. Particularly and surprisingly well-preserved; tight, bright, clean and especially sharp-cornered.; 423 pages; Physical description: 423 p. ; 24cm. Summary: When people are frightened, there's always a presumption of guilt if your face doesn't fit ...' In 1970 Howard Stamp, a retarded twenty-year-old, was convicted on disputed evidence and a retracted confession of brutally murdering his grandmother in her Dorset home. Less than three years later he was dead, driven to suicide by self-hatred and relentless bullying by other prisoners. A fate befitting a murderer, perhaps, but what if he were innocent? More than a quarter of a century later, anthropologist and author Jonathan Hughes re-examines Stamp's case for a book on injustice. His research leads him to believe that Stamp was wrongly convicted. But is the previously forgotten story of one friendless young man compelling enough to make Hughes leave his ivory tower in order to champion justice for someone he never knew? Under pressure from a local councillor, who lives on the street where Stamp's grandmother was killed, Hughes takes up his research again. George Gardener has been trying to bring Stamp's case to public attention for years and has unearthed new evidence that might exonerate him. But Gardener needs the young academic on board if it is to be used. Genre: Crime fiction -- Detective and mystery stories. Subjects: Anthropologists - Fiction. Murder - Investigation - Fiction.

Reseña del editor:

'The only factors that unite her works are her penchant for dark psychological perception; and their excellence' THE TIMES In 1970, Harold Stamp, a retarded, reclusive twenty year-old was convicted on disputed evidence and a retracted confession of brutally murdering his grandmother - the one person who understood and protected him. Less than three years later he is dead, driven to suicide by isolation and despair. Jonathan Hughes, an anthropologist specialising in social stereotyping, is determined to re-examine this case. There were alarming disparities in the evidence and Hughes has little doubt that there has been a terrible miscarriage of justice. But there is also something else pushing this half-Iranian, half-Libyan outsider to reach for the truth . . . This is more than a mere expose of corruption, it is a dark tale of solitude and the relentless need to contain aberration and section evil. 'Minette Walters has stormed her way into crime fiction. With her first three books she claimed the highest accolades the crime-writing world can bestow . . . A seductive writer with an imagination that makes her dangerous to know' SUNDAY EXPRESS
