Synopsis:

A novel based on a true unsolved murder by poisoning in Victorian-era London

Charles Cranbrook collapses and dies a horrific death at the Priory, the neogothic house bought with his wealthy wife Cecilia's money. Was he murdered, or did he take his own life? In the course of the inquest, it emerges that beautiful Cecilia had been involved in a scandalous affair that is the talk of London. Based on the notorious Victorian murder involving Charles and Florence Bravo and Dr. James Gully, proponent of the "water cure," this story reaches beneath the veneer of Victorian respectability and twists the ingredients of enormous fortune, sexual adventure, domestic abuse, avarice, and jealousy into a satisfying whole. Expertly researched by the author, it offers an intriguing solution to the case.

About the Author: John Kerr is a graduate of Stanford University and the University of Texas Law School. A long-time student of European and American history, he lives and writes in San Antonio, Texas.
