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.
