Description: 

We’ve saved the best till last! Revenge, passion, greed, racism, corruption…this talk has it all. Following his triumph in retrospectively ‘solving’ the 1937 Pamela Werner murder in bestseller Midnight in Peking, Paul French has returned to true crime in his latest work for Audible Originals to reinvestigate a dozen controversial murder cases in old China, uncovering startling new evidence over a century later. Why did a remote police station, built to combat pirates, find itself at the centre of a murder-suicide after a constable went on the rampage? Who was trafficking vulnerable women from Europe to Shanghai in the early 1900s? How did Chinese gangsters avoid conviction after serving a deadly dinner to Shanghai’s elite? And why is Britain’s Foreign Office still withholding a key document crucial to solving a murder that took place in the Gobi desert in 1935?


By delving deep into twelve of China’s most fascinating murder cases, this talk delivers a rip roaring journey through China’s early 20th-century history and its criminal under-belly, with cases in Peking, Tianjin, Shanghai and Hong Kong included. A real treat of a talk to close out our Speaker Series.
