The Murder of Charles Bravo

We're delighted to announce we've acquired world English rights to Dolores Gordon-Smith's radio play "The Murder of Charles Bravo" which is based on the real life unsolved murder mystery of British lawyer Charles Bravo in 1876.


The case is still sensational, notorious and unresolved though Dolores does include a possible solution as to who was responsible for the poisoning of Bravo with antimony. "The Murder of Charles Bravo" will be published this autumn.
