Murder at Wrotham Hill takes the killing in October 1946 of Dagmar Petrzywalski as the catalyst for a compelling and unique meditation on murder and fate.

Dagmar, a gentle, eccentric spinster, was the embodiment of Austerity Britain’s prudence and thrift. Her murderer Harold Hagger’s litany of petty crimes, abandoned wives, sloughed-off identities and desertion was its opposite. The texture of their lives and the impression their experiences made on their characters fated their meeting on that bleak autumn morning – and determined the manner in which both would meet their death.

Featuring England’s first celebrity policeman, Fabian of the Yard, the celebrated forensic scientist, Keith Simpson, and history’s most famous and dedicated hangman, Albert Pierrepoint, this is a gripping and deeply moving book.
