Good stuff, a cut above ! Does a housebound bookworm good. We are not worthy, dear LibriVox! Of special interest were THE SHAM BARONET, on the "great" Tichborne case or the Butcher of Wagga Wagga (just wanted to say Wagga Wagga don't you love 'stralian?). Seven years and two trials were needed to decide whether the drowned heir who surfaces years later is an imposter; and that about Dr. Crippen, who I recently (2013ish) heard is now being called an innocent man. Decide for yourself with this tale from a witness who knew the Crippens intimately.

excellent.
