A young woman marries and before long drowns in her bath. There's no sign of a struggle or suggestion of foul play. In the dark opening months of the First World War, Britain became engrossed by the 'Brides in the Bath' trial: a story of murder, played out in the lodging houses of seaside towns, in the confines of married life, reaching its horrendous climax in that most intimate of settings - the bathroom. The nation turned to a forensic pathologist, Bernard Spilsbury, to explain the deaths. This was the age of science. In fiction, Sherlock Holmes applied a scientific mind to solving crimes. In real life, would Spilsbury be as infallible as the 'great detective'?

Good solid book.
No mystery, just facts about real life crime.
