With this new book you will have information that answers questions and even overturns some of what the so-called “seminal work” and other supposedly authoritative accounts have led us to believe, either because of deficient research or preconception. As you, perhaps, I used to think that the traditional books were reliable, factually accurate and founded on a quest for truth rather than the pursuit of an agenda, until, that is, I started to look more closely.

But this need not, indeed should not, be the case when a greater degree of rigorous and unbiased research allows more of the truth to be uncovered.

Sixty and more years on, Christie, Evans and 10 Rillington Place continue to fascinate. But closer examination reveals that many of the long-accepted truths are actually false. Serial killing might nowadays seem an almost commonplace and global phenomenon, but the Rillington Place murders still hold a unique place in the public psyche - as though they somehow represent an original horror by which all others are judged.

Christie - simply to be reviled as a monster who was allowed to continue his murderous career thanks to an incompetent and corrupt judicial system? Evans - to be seen as a naïve, gullible soul who fell victim to circumstance as Christie committed perjury to incriminate him and send him to the gallows? Some, however, have always believed Evans to be far from the innocent victim that history has portrayed and that his confessions to the murder of his wife and infant daughter were indeed true. That certainly seems to have been the consensus of the professionals with direct knowledge of the case at the time.

But where does the research lead and where does the truth really lie?

Containing many photographs both of the modern locations and previously unpublished period press pictures, the book also sets out the results of extensive research, maps, documents and detailed critiques of the principal books on the subject. All aspects of the cases are carefully considered and there is also a moving personal account from someone who actually lived in Rillington Place at the time.

Whatever one believes, this account serves to lay many of the falsehoods to rest. It would be impossible to address and correct every error, every tabloid exaggeration, every recycled myth and every other oft-repeated but nevertheless false detail about the case – but this book sets out to tell the story without the bias, error and misinformation.
