Friday 31st, 2pm
At Mrs Ridgeley’s Corner Talk by Paul Stickler

Paul returns to talk about a case on which he has recently written a book. This is the remarkable case of the murder of a woman in her Hertfordshire shop in 1919. After a woeful investigation by the local police, Scotland Yard sends in Fred Wensley, widely regarded as Britain’s cleverest detective.
Set amidst the post-war period of austerity and political uncertainty, the book lays bare the vagaries of rural policing.
