THE WINNER OF THE CRIME WRITERS' ASSOCIATION GOLD DAGGER AWARD 2006, and COMMENDED IN THE ALAN BALL LOCAL HISTORY AWARDS 2006.
In June 1846, 20 year old Dagenham police constable George Clark was brutally murdered while on night duty. This lavishly-illustrated book is the first full-length study of a killing that shocked the nation but was to remain unsolved. Many suspects and motives have been put forward, with one theory even implicating Clark's own police colleagues.
The authors were all born and bred in the Dagenham area, and have used original sources to uncover new facts and insights into this fascinating case. The action ranges from rural Essex to London's prisons and convict hulks, from the wilds of British Columbia to the Australian goldfields.
Along the way we meet a cross-section of the early Victorian community, from the monarch herself down to the wretched victims of the 'Hungry 40s'.
