Sean O’Connor

The Fatal Passion of Alma Rattenbury

Published by: Simon & Schuster

The famous 1935 murder of an elderly man by his wife’s lover told in much greater detail than ever before. O’Connor traces the story of Alma and Francis Rattenbury back to its colonial/imperial roots and through to an England which is simultaneously distant and familiar to us. A classic piece of true crime writing.
