A Very English Scandal: Sex, Lies and a Murder Plot at the Heart of the Establishment - John M. Preston

the whole thing becomes quite surreal once two British politicians start skulking around the shadows of the House of Commons discussing a murder. this must have been a big deal at the time, when the story finally hit the public consciousness; I haven't got that far yet in the proceedings, though. it's a stupefying bit of notorious history. Thorpe has turned into quite a piece of work.
