The Murder that Defeated Whitechapel's Sherlock Holmes

At Mrs Ridgley's Corner

Paul Stickler

In Hitchin, Hertfordshire, in 1919, the inept investigation into the brutal murder of a shopkeeper and her dog led to the involvement of Scotland Yard. This account, which combines expert analysis with historical narrative, tells the story from the perspective of those involved, revealing the inadequacy of county policing and showing how investigative processes developed in the years after the First World War.
