There are cases in the annals of English criminal law that forever resonate. In Three Cases that Shook the Law former district judge Ronald Bartle has selected three for close scrutiny: cases where the defendants paid the ultimate penalty even though demonstrably the victims of injustice.

They are those of:-

  • Edith Thompson who suffered due to her romantic mind-set, a young lover and the prevailing moral climate;
  • William Joyce (Lord ‘Haw Haw’) where the law was stretched to its limits to accommodate treason;
  • and Timothy Evans who died due to the lies of the principal prosecution witness Reginald John Halliday Christie who it later transpired was both a serial killer and likely perpetrator.

Weaving narrative, transcripts and original court records the author presents the reader with a captivating book in which his long experience as a lawyer and magistrate is brought fully to bear.

A valuable addition to the history of English law that will be of particular interest to those concerned about miscar riages of justice or capital punishment (which remains rife in parts of the world).
