In 1943, de Marigny was accused of the murder of his millionaire father-in-law, Sir Harry Oakes, in the Bahamas. Although properly acquitted following a sensational trial, de Marigny was deported, his reputation and marriage to Nancy Oakes in ruins. In this book, de Marigny names the person he believes murdered Oakes, and he charges the Duke of Windsor, the governor of the Bahamas at the time, with being instrumental in framing him for the crime. The Oakes case continues to generate interest, as indicated by a recent ABC-TV mini-series and by books such as James Leasor's Who Killed Sir Harry Oakes? ( LJ 10/15/83). Given its persuasive opinions, this account is essential reading for followers of the case.
