This is a true story. In 1910, a cashier, was murdered on a train in the UK. A few days later, John Alexander Dickman was arrested and charged. He was tried in July and was convicted on circumstantial evidence. He was hanged in August. This book re-examines all the evidence and concludes that Dickman's conviction was unsafe. It then goes on to name the real killer after more than 100 years.
