Product description

Product Description

Immerse yourself in Victorian intrigue and the world of publican Josephine. A story never before told. A suspicious death, a coroner’s inquest, a Supreme Court verdict of fraud and a family cut out of a last minute will. Did Josephine kill this man and three others? Climb aboard the investigative journey. Includes readers’ guide for book groups. Follow on Twitter for added colour.

The author brings together, for the first time, the case that Josephine may have murdered four men at her Victorian era Gasworks Hotel – two of them husbands.

This is a story highly evocative of the times – the language; the social norms. It is mostly a story about ordinary people, although some of the characters rose to great heights in South Australia as premier, police commissioner and city coroner. But the conclusion is anything but ordinary.

This is the story of Josephine. From 1863 to 1874 she was the publican at the Gasworks Hotel in Brompton, an inner suburb of Adelaide, South Australia. Was she also a man killer?

"The research is incredible. It gives great insight into ... Adelaide at that time… like ‘The Mayne Inheritance’ did for Brisbane." Simon, 6 June

"A great read, drew me in. Very well written and researched." Kat, 11 May

Having worked for a quarter of a Century next to this old established Hotel I had no idea about its notorious History and the Landlady who may or may not have dispatched of 4 Men including Husbands. I'm still in the middle of reading this Book and finding it thoroughly interesting reading about Brompton in the mid to late 1800's it seemed to me that people were always taking each other to court for minor things and interesting how Alcohol was dispensed medicinally by The Doctors of the time.
