At a time when Edwardian Britain seemed a golden place, American physician Hawley Harvey Crippen and his wife, Belle, lived among the suburban villas of North London. After supper on January 31, 1910, the guests departed, and Crippen poisoned Belle, dismembered her, and buried part of her remains in the coal cellar. Crippen never confessed, taking the secrets of the crime with him when he was finally hanged for murder. It is assumed that Crippen killed for the love of his mistress, Ethel Le Neve. Living together as man and wife, but under intense suspicion, they fled disguised as father and son. The chase was widely reported in Europe and America, and Crippen was finally apprehended. In Supper with the Crippens, David James Smith reinvestigates this celebrated murder case.

About the Author:

David James Smith was born in South London in 1956 and has been a journalist all his working life. He writes for the Sunday Times Magazine and Esquire.

Review:

'Smith gives a superb psychological insight into a man who was thought to be inscrutable and inexpressive ... Smith's impartial journalistic eye gives a balanced account of the events, untouched by the hyperbole so prevalent in many contemporary accounts.' THE HERALD 'David James Smith, a journalist, has been meticulous in his research and this book is likely to remain the definitive account of a crime which still intrigues, and to an extent baffles, aficionados of murder.' -- P.D.James SUNDAY TELEGRAPH
