  • Move to Murder: Who Killed Julia Wallace?

    Hi, after setting up the other Wallace thread (which has over 350k views) I know there is some interest in the case.

    My book, Move To Murder, was due to published last November but was delayed to allow Death of an Actress - my book about the Gay Gibson case - to be released in time for the 70th anniversary of the trial of James Camb for her murder.

    However, today Move to Murder is finally published. For those new to the Wallace case, it is arguably Britain's most baffling unsolved murder. I hope the book will be of interest to those who know about the case, too. It compares and contrasts five theories, including a new one (by a poster to these forums), and publishes original evidence for the first time. This includes:

    - the post mortem report that contradicts expert testimony at the trial;

    - exclusive extracts from Wallace's unpublished memoir that provide his last known thoughts on the murder and his trial;

    - the timing tests conducted by the defence but never used at trial.

    And, best of all, you do not have to agree with my conclusions. You can deliver your verdict on what you believe most likely happened on the ColdCaseJury website. Will the overall verdict of the jury find Wallace guilty? Or will one of the other four theories be endorsed? The result is in your hands.

    If there is interest, this thread will answer specific questions about the book. For general points about the case, see the other thread.

    N.B. The newspaper article is from today's Daily Express (1 Nov 2018).

      Thanks for the update, but to my knowledge it has not been published in any book before. And the one reported in Murphy's book and Goodman's book is different.

        Post seems unnecessary.

        I'm looking forward to reading this book. I will be a tough sell on certain theories though, but my mind is always open...

            Rod, AS is one of the most knowledgeable guys on the forum. He has arrived at a different conclusion from you but his argument is entirely rational and strong. No one is going to have an open mind after they've been insulted. Everyone on these threads must be treated with respect.

              Hi,
              According to Amazon the book isn't available for 1-3 months. Is this correct?

                Hi John,

                No, it is incorrect. I believe this message sometimes flashes up when a new book goes out of stock at Amazon (I have no idea why). It should be in stock by the end of the week.

                Not only is the delivery message wrong, but the cover is also incorrect (it is an old version). The correct cover is posted above.

                I'm only the author.

                  Thanks Antony, much appreciated. I shall certainly purchase the book as soon as it becomes available.

                  Looks like Amazon have hardly covered themselves in glory, though!

                    Thank you, John. And I hope we can discuss the case again.

                      Hi Antony,

                      Defintely. I still have a great interest in the case and would love to discuss your latest book once I've had the opportunity to read it.

                      Meanwhile, I'm planning a lengthy new post which I hope to submit on the other thread later this week.

                            I can understand why

                            Debate has degenerated again.

                            I wonder why

                              There will be a review from me within the next couple weeks up here. It will be in depth.
