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- exclusive extracts from Wallace's unpublished memoir that provide his last known thoughts on the murder and his trial;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

I have read up a little more on this and have a lot of thoughts but this is the main one;

if its true the Qualtrough call came from the call box near wallaces house at the about the same time that Wallace would be walking near on his way to the chess café then there is little doubt in my mind he made the call and is the killer.


Its way too much of a coincidence.


I had said before that the call probably didn't come from him since they didn't recognize his voice, but if the above is true he must have made the call. and simply disguised his voice well enough.



or would the killer know his movements well enough, and plan this out well enough (over a burglery? revenge?) and take the risk of being seen and recognized by Wallace on his way by (or anyone else) to make the call to the chess cafe from that call box? i find that very hard to beleive.

Or, perhaps someone was watching his movements and waited to check that he left to go to the chess club before making the call, thus ensuring he would receive the message. If that were the case, two things follow:
* there is a good chance Wallace would have recognised the voice which is why the caller phoned when he could leave a message - therefore the caller was well known to Wallace;
* there was a reason the murderer could not (or did not want to) commit the robbery/murder that night.
