Details

In 1871 the pioneer cinematographer Eadweard Muybridge killed Harry Larkyns in cold blood for having an affair with his wife, but was sensationally acquitted of murder. After Rebecca Gowers discovered the victim was her distant cousin, she used personal and newspaper accounts, plus military and legal records to research and reconstruct Larkyns’ fascinating life, which took him from the Indian Mutiny through debauchery in Paris to a bohemian Californian existence.
