In 1945 Britain's most famous police officer, Chief Inspector Robert Fabian, was dispatched to investigate the murder of a retired labourer in rural Warwickshire. But amid rumours that the murdered man had been a clairvoyant and that his death was the result of ritual witchcraft, villagers were unable or unwilling to help. This book distills truth from the myths about the case and shows why it proved a rare failure for Fabian.
