The genteel London suburb of Croydon was the improbable setting for a sensational triple poisoning in the late Twenties.
Within a year three members of a single family had died from massive doses of arsenic. Three exhumations were ordered, three lengthy inquests held, but the authorities could find no hint of a motive and no clue as to the killer. In August 1929 the case was officially closed, the secret poisoner remained free and the papers on the case lay gathering dust for almost half a century.
Then Richard Whittington-Egan began his own investigation, he talked to the principles, re-examined the documentary evidence and steadily drew back the lace curtains that had closed around the drawing room drama. His conclusions had to remain unpublished during the lifetime of the chief suspect...but now his solutions to the riddle of Bathurst Rise are public.
