At midnight on 1 August 1876, PC Nicholas Cock was shot dead whilst on duty in a leafy suburb of Manchester. His superior, Superintendent James Bent, immediately knew who the culprits were and arrested local labourers, the Habron brothers. He then set out to build his case against them.

The wily detective’s painstaking investigation culminated in a dramatic court case and young William Habron was sentenced to death. Later, in an unexpected twist of events, a startling confession by a notorious criminal revealed the true identity of PC Cock’s killer.

The second in her historical true crime series, Victorian Supersleuth Investigates, Angela Buckley re-creates this extraordinary case of murder, mystery and a miscarriage of justice.

Available in ebook and paperback
