Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0688002064, Hardcover)

The trial of Gaston Dominici, aged 77, for the murder of the English family Drummond was one of the most sensational ever to come before a french court, both in itself and because it made french legal history. No less sensational was the police investigation that preceded it. For almost three years the case was headline news in two countries. Its true facts remain conjectural to this day. Sir Jack Drummond was a well-known scientist. On the night of august 5 1952 he and his wife and 10-year-old daughter camped beside a main road in provence within 100 yards of the Dominici farmhouse. By morning all three were dead: the parents shot and the child clubbed down as she ran from her attacker. The motive remained obscure. The suspects soon narrowed down to a small group, almost all members of the Dominici family all who lied.
