Illustrated with B&W photographs. From the cover: “On a July morning in 1992, 23-year-old Rachel Nickell was horrifically stabbed and sexually assaulted in broad daylight on Wimbledon Common. In 1994, Colin Stagg, the only man ever to have been charged with her murder, was cleared of the killing that had shocked the nation. His name was seared on the public consciousness as that of ‘the man who got away with murder’. He suffered verbal abuse, physical attacks, hate mail, and death threats and had no chance of ever being gainfully employed. He has been leading the life of a pariah, suffering at the hands of a lynch-mob mentality that could not accept his innocence. In “Pariah”, Colin Stagg examines the tragedy of the murder of Rachel Nickell from his own perspective and the flawed police investigation that failed them both.”
