Author talk and signing: Death in Peking by Graeme Sheppard, hosted by Hungerford Bookshop
Tuesday 9 April, 7.30pm
The brutal murder of the young and beautiful Pamela Werner in the city of Peking one night in January 1937 shocked the world, but the police never found or named the murderer. A best-selling book, Midnight in Peking, declared the murderer to be an American dentist, but English policeman Graeme Sheppard, 30 years with Scotland Yard, decided that conclusion was flawed, spent years investigating all aspects of the case and came up with an entirely different conclusion.
