Colin Evans's latest book is out now! THE KILLING OF GEORGIE MOORE: A True-Life Victorian Mystery.
In 1881 London was rocked when seven-year-old Georgina Moore was kidnapped from outside her school. Suspicion soon fell on a sultry neighbour named Esther Pay. Until recently she had been the mistress of Georgina's father, only to be cast aside when his lecherous gaze turned elsewhere.
