Exhumation of a Murder

Exhumation of A Murder is a comprehensive study of the case of Major Armstrong, the celebrated Hay Poisoner, one of the most notorious murderers of the twentieth century and the only solicitor ever to hang. It is one of those classic old-fashioned English murders, which hail from the heyday of the courtroom drama when, with the hangman lurking in the pine-and-panel wings and the black cap an object of horryfyingly alarming currency rather than mere symbolism, the loser in 'the black dock's dreadful pen lost all'. And the Armstrong case was unquestionably one of the best; right up there in the grand tradition of Dr Palmer of Rugeley, Neill Cream, Mrs Maybrick, Dr Crippen, Seddon and George Joseph Smith. Contains a wealth of original photographs and documentation.

About the Author

Robin Odell acknowledges his debt to the researches of the late Dr Hubert Trumper a medical practitioner in Hay-on-Wye, and the late Joe Gaute, distinguished crime historian and publisher. Their combined efforts sustained over several years brought many insights to bear on the life and trial of Major Armstrong.
