This is a compelling true crime story of a double murder that happened in Edgware, North London, in 1949. Leopold and Esther Goodman, a well-off, middle-aged Jewish couple, were found hacked to death in their home. The murders are particularly significant for the author, Jeff Grout, because his father, Philip Grout, was one of the three detectives assigned to the case. During his years as a detective, Philip worked on many high-profile crimes including the Great Train Robbery, the Hanratty Case and the Profumo Affair. But after Philip died his son, Jeff, found just one file from his father's police days - and it contained original papers and scene-of-crime photographs from that double murder in Edgware. Why keep this file and no other? Why did the Goodman killings make such an impression on him? Find out what Jeff Grout found in that file and how it led him and his co-author, Liz Fisher, on a fascinating detective hunt of their own to uncover the truth behind the murders that so shocked a nation in 1949.
