Hardback, 1st edn. It seems impossible that two stranglers of women could both live in the same house, yet this is what the author maintains happened in Notting Hill in 1949. John Reginald Halliday Christie was already a murderer, with a score of at least 2, when Timothy John Evans, much younger, and on the edge of idiocy, came to live with his wife at 10 Rillington Place. Christie is supposed to have framed Evans over the killing of his wife and baby daughter, and was even the principal Crown witness against Evans. The author challenges Timothy Evans' innocence to claim that Evans was guilty of the murders. With careful research the author highlights inaccuracies in previous accounts of the case and builds a convincing and controversial argument. However, as a direct result of threatened legal action by Ludovic Kennedy (which was settled out of court), this first edition of the book was withdrawn from sale, which now makes it an extremely scarce title. Illus., Appendix and Index. 218pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer Wilfred Gregg with his personal b/plate. Includes loosely inserted 2pp. copy of typed comments by John Eddowes relating to true crime historian Martin Fido's book review, and a responding 2pp. typed letter from Martin Fido to John Eddowes dated September 20th 1994. Also includes, loosely inserted book review of this book by Ian Gilmour plus a 'Telegraph Magazine' interview with John Eddowes (undated) discussing the new edition of 'The Two Killers of Rillington Place', written to replace this 1st edition, which was withdrawn after a successful libel action against publishers Little, Brown by Ludovic. Kennedy. F. in F. dw.
