The purpose of this blog is to offer educational, historical information about the events surrounding the high-profile murder trial of Beatrice Pace in 1928, a case known at the time as the 'Fetter Hill Mystery'. Although based upon research conducted for the book The Most Remarkable Woman in England: Poison, Celebrity and the Trials of Beatrice Pace (Manchester University Press, 2012), the blog is a personal, non-commercial venue for scholarly information about the case itself and the broader context of the history of crime, policing, media and criminal justice in the inter-war period.
