In 1908, a wealthy woman was murdered in her Glasgow home. Oscar Slater, a German Jewish immigrant, was found guilty and sentenced to life imprisonment. Convinced of his innocence, Arthur Conan Doyle deployed the methods of his fictional detective to prove it. Written with the verve of a whodunnit, this book follows his efforts to secure the man’s freedom. Slightly off-mint and felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge.
