Hardback. A controversial and infamous murder story. In 1949 a man called Timothy John Evans was hanged for the murder of his child, whose body, together with that of its mother, Beryl Evans, had been found strangled in the wash-house of 10 Rillington Place, London. Fours years later, 4 more bodies were found. All of these were women and all had been strangled - on his own admission - by John Reginald Christie. In addition, 2 other bodies were found in the garden. According to John Eddowes in his book 'The Two Killers of Rillington Place' - there was no miscarriage of justice as Evans was guilty.
