    One of the most intriguing unsolved murders of the 20th century took place in June 1931, when Lieutenant Hugh Chevis died of strychnine poisoning following a partridge dinner which 'tasted horrible'. Featuring previously unpublished material and highlighting the difficulties faced by the investigators, this book brings together the evidence, from the account of Mrs Chevis to a mysterious telegram and the postcard proclaiming, 'It is a mystery they will never solve'.
