Description

Kate Summerscale: The Wicked Boy

‘The Wicked Boy’ is a gripping account of a murder case that sent late Victorian Britain into a frenzy, by the bestselling, multi-award-winning author of ‘The Suspicions of Mr Whicher’. Kate Summerscale’s latest book is a compelling and shocking study of two young brothers, Robert and Nattie Coombes, who became an overnight sensation when they were discovered to have murdered their mother. Kate’s extensive research uncovers how notions of class, education, gender and criminality played a role in the case.
