MOVE TO MURDER
A PUZZLING COLD CASE IS REVIVED
RELEASED OUT NOW AUTHOR ANTONY M. BROWN PUBLISHER MIRROR BOOKS AVAILABLE IN PAPERBACK
Cold Case Jury fans assemble: Brown is back with his latest instalment of unsolved murders for you to sleuth over. This time, when William Wallace returned to his humble Liverpool home on the evening of 20 January 1931, tired from a wild goose- chase looking for a mysterious ‘ R. M. Qualtrough’, he discovered the bloody and bludgeoned corpse of his wife of 16 years in the lounge. Police were suspicious: Wallace’s Mackintosh was folded up and carefully placed beneath the head of the victim’s lukewarm corpse, and while the rest of the home remained intact, the crime scene of this brutal murder was a mess. Yet Julia’s killer hadn’t touched the money in the jar atop the bookcase. When questioned about his whereabouts, the particulars of the strange call that had removed Wallace from the scene at the time of the murder were deemed suspicious. Police came to the conclusion that the victim’s husband had killed her and attempted to concoct a watertight alibi for himself.
Wallace was convicted of the murder, only to have the Court Of Criminal Appeal overturn the decision. The case has baffled investigators for nearly eight decades. Now,
Brown is applying the same methods used in his last Cold Case Jury books ( The Green Bicycle Mystery and Death Of An Actress) to crack the case of the impoverished housewife wide open. With a host of shady characters, at least two individuals possess credible motives, but who was it and did they act alone? Superbly written and brilliantly argued, Move To Murder is a true crime lover’s dream. Filled with thought- provoking and compelling arguments as to who could have committed such a heinous crime, Brown lifts the lid on decades of secrets that could be key to identifying Julia’s killer, providing readers with a treasure trove of information to help them reach their own conclusion.
