Publisher's Synopsis

'Enthralling ... will leave true-crime readers with more to ponder than they bargained for' - The Herald

From the UK's leading criminologist comes the true story of Margaret McLaughlin, and the man he believes was fitted up for her murder

Before David Wilson became the UK's pre-eminent criminologist, he was just a young boy growing up in the Scottish town of Carluke. As a child, the brutal murder of a young woman rocked this small community, but very quickly a man was arrested for the crime, convicted and put behind bars. For most, life slowly carried on - case closed.

But there were whispers in the town, that the wrong man was imprisoned. Over the years, these whispers grew louder, to the point that any time David would visit, friends and acquaintances would ask in hushed tones: 'But what are you going to do about the Carluke Case?'

Carluke believed that a young man had been wrongly convicted. A murderer was still on the loose.

Forty years later, it's time for David to return home, and find out the truth.
