An amazing story of a butcher from Wagga becoming the claimant to an English title and a lengthy court case that provided much entertainment in late 1860's London. Robyn Annear is a skilled historian; the book full of detail but never boring. ( )

The Unbelievable Story of the Tichborne Claimant. A gripping mystery from start to finish and all the more amazing because it is true! Roger Tichborne was lost at sea in 1854. 12 years later, a man emerges in New South Wales claiming to be the long lost heir to the Tichborne family fortunes. In the days before DNA tests , lawyers on both sides of the case must use the unreliable evidence of eye-witnesses to prove whether Tom Castro is who he claims he is, or just a lowly butcher from Wagga or will they uncover something more sinister. A fascinating book for those who like REAL mysteries!!!p.3 – 4. then skip to p.9 “Dick Slate was…” until the end of the chapter.
