Deborah Findlay reads from Kate Summerscale's account of a Victorian murder case that gripped the nation.

3/5. Whicher's prime suspect Constance Kent is brought before the judge at Temperance Hall to face questions about the murder of her younger brother Saville. After a convincing performance by her defence team, Whicher's case seems to be crumbling. With the release of both Constance and the local police's suspect, nursemaid Elizabeth Gough, the truth seems as elusive as ever.
