Few cases have aroused more interest than that of John Reginald Halliday Christie, who was convicted of the murder of his wife at the Central Criminal court in June 1953. The preliminary investigations before the trial were not limited to the death of Mrs Christie but included the deaths of 3 other women found murdered in the same house and the identification of 2 female skeletons recovered from the garden. They also included the exhumation, at the request of the defence, of the victim of a previous murder. Christie was a confirmed necophilliac. This book describes in detail the medical and scientific investigations that step by step, assisted in the conviction of the murderer.
