Summary
On June 22, 1931, Lieutenant Hugh Chevis and Frances, his bride of six months, sat down to dinner as usual at their bungalow at Deepcut Barracks. Within an hour, Chevis was showing signs of strychnine poisoning, and by the next morning he was dead. Thus began one of the most intriguing unsolved murder enquiries of the twentieth century—soon to become known as "The Case of the Poisoned Partridge." When a mysterious telegram arrived from Dublin on the day of Hugh’s funeral, containing the words "HOORAY HOORAY HOORAY," the Surrey Police found themselves at the center of an international investigation, considering clues from Eire, India, and the Far East. Suspicion also fell on those closer to home. Was it possible to break the alibi provided by Major Jackson, Frances’ former husband? And what of the enigmatic Frances herself? Featuring previously unpublished material, this book provides the definitive account of the Case of the Poisoned Partridge
