A hundred years ago, the true story of the brutal murder of Miss Jean Milne in a small seaside town captured the imagination of the whole country. A wealthy spinster who lived alone in a crumbling mansion, Miss Milne appeared to be the very model of respectability.
But behind the facade, Miss Milne was living a secret life. Why was this quiet spinster tied up in her own home, tortured and brutally murdered?
Now, using newly released evidence from police files, eyewitness testimony hidden for a century and long-forgotten newspaper reports from the scene, Andrew Nicoll has brought the case back from the dead to reveal the secrets of the little town where Jean Milne was murdered.

Unusual, gripping crime story.
Less well known than the Oscar Slater/Marion Gilchrist affair, which later precipitated the downfall of the detective responsible for this investigation, the true life unsolved murder of Jean Milne is recounted by the local police sergeant as it unfolded
A local laddie, he sees the arrogance and mistakes of his superiors, but surprises us with the solution, or at least, his version of it.
