More Info

In a time before the science of crime became the solving of it, a detective relied on an open eye, a keen ear and the dogged pursuit of any and every lead. Here in
Victorian England, the difference between innocence and guilt can all be weighed upon The Suspicions of Mr Whicher.

 


The Murder at Road Hill House

 

Adapted from Kate Summerscale’s bestselling book, a gripping true story of murder, psychological suspense and courtroom drama.On the morning of 30th June, 1860, on the edge of a sleepy Wiltshire village, three-year-old Saville Kent has disappeared from his bedroom in the mansion known as Road Hill House. When he is found brutally murdered, the case becomes a national scandal and the Home Secretary calls on Inspector Jonathan “Jack” Whicher, the much lauded ‘Prince of Sleuths’. Jack soon finds himself in another world, of lords and masters and their servants. All have something to hide, but only one knows the darkest truth of all.

 


The Murder in Angel Lane

 

Jack Whicher, the pioneering detective now turned “private inquiry agent”, spies a finely dressed lady in an unseemly part of town and feels honour-bound to help her. Susan Spencer is desperately searching for her vulnerable young niece and Mr Whicher’s suspicions are soon raised. As he makes inquiries of his old colleagues in
Scotland Yard, he soon becomes embroiled in a dark and devious case of murder and sinister family secrets. In a time before the science of crime became the solving of it, a detective relied on an open eye, a keen ear and the dogged pursuit of any and every lead. Here in Victorian England, the difference between innocence and guilt can all be weighed upon The Suspicions of Mr Whicher.

 

Beyond The Pale

 

Charles, The son of Sir Edward Shore (former Home Secretary and man behind Whicher’s dismissal from the force) has now come to him with a delicate problem.  His son has returned from India with wife and children, only to discover he is being pursued by Lascars (Indian sailors) in search of some kind of retribution.   Sir Edward would like this case hushed up and quietly solved; but when murder comes into play, all rules and social etiquettes must be put to aside.

 

 

The Ties That Bind

 

Whicher follows a married woman through London to a secret assignation.  He is bearing witness to an open and shut case that will lead to divorce for Sir Henry Coverley from his wife Lady Jane.  But when the co-respondent is killed , a simple case soon spirals out of control, embracing love, desire,  gambling, corruption, theft and an illicit passion that leads to murder.
