The Murder Case that Shook a GenerationOn 2nd November 1952, two teenagers were trapped by police on a warehouse roof. In the course of what the national press were to describe as 'a Chicago-style gun battle', P.C. Sidney Miles was shot between the eyes and died.16-year-old Christopher Craig and 19-year-old Derek Bentley were subsequently arrested and sent to trial. They came to personify the disaffected youth of post-war Britain, but Derek Bentley became much more. His story and ultimate fate are unique in the annals of criminal history.Originally published in 1971, and the subject of a controversial television play, To Encourage the Others dramatically re-opens a case which still demands that justice be done.There are many reasons why David Yallop is considered the world's greatest investigative author. To Encourage the Others is one of them: as powerful an argument against capital punishment as has ever been published.

The murders, the arrest, the trial. First world publication of the full story.David Yallop is the investigative writer whose previous books, including the bestselling To Encourage the Others and Beyond Reasonable Doubt?, have solved four murder mysteries. In this, his new book, he turns to the most infamous murderer in the world today - the Yorkshire Ripper.This is the story of a man who killed his women victims with grotesque cruelty. Who eluded one of the greatest hunts in history. And it is the story of the numbing fear that gripped northern England where, if you were a woman, you might suddenly die a violent and obscene death.Following two years intensive research with police officers, the victims' relatives, pathologists, prostitutes and many others, David Yallop has produced an investigative account of murder that captures in full the evil reality of the man they called the Yorkshire Ripper. And, most remarkable of all, he identified before the arrest where the solution to the murders lay.

On 17th June, 1970, in a small farming district, south of Auckland, New Zealand, Harvey and Jeanette Crewe were shot and killed in the lounge of their home. Five months later, a neighbour, Arthur Allan Thomas, was arrested, charged and found guilty of their murder. He was sentenced to life imprisonment. A retrial in 1972 ended with another guilty verdict.David Yallop, author of To Encourage the Others and The Day the Laughter Stopped, two already celebrated books which dealt with miscarriages of justice, spent over a year in New Zealand investigating the case and became convinced of Thomas' innocence. in an open letter to New Zealand's Prime Minister, he demanded Thomas' release on the grounds that he 'has not been found guilty beyond reasonable doubt. He has in fact been found innocent beyond reasonable doubt.' In 1978, as a direct result of Yallop's intercession and the publication of this book, Thomas was granted a royal pardon and, in 1980, awarded nearly 1 million dollars in compensation for the nine years he had served behind bards.Beyond Reasonable Doubt? is both a riveting work of high drama and a compelling insight into the machinery of criminal justice. A Number One bestseller in hgardcover and the subject of a widely-acclaimed film, it is a lasting testimony to David Yallop's reputation as the world's greatest investigative author.
