message 4: by Thom (new)

Thom Dunn Arthur and George---Is that the one where the Yard grabbed up an Indian guy cause someone was out cutting on cows ?


Themis-Athena (Does not and never will own a Kindle) Yes -- and according to Barnes (as well as "The True Crime Files of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle"), ACD went to great lengths to exonerate him. Barnes's book is about victimization and feelings of guilt at least as much as it is about Conan Doyle's campaign to clear George Edalji's name, though.


message 2: by Thom (new)

Thom Dunn Helps to put IN SITU A. C. Doyle in Victorian society, too.
