TRUE CRIME: John Fletcher's Edwardian murder story is based on real events.

Frederick and Margaret Seddon take wealthy Mrs Barrow into their Islington home as a lodger. During the scorching summer of 1911, Mrs Barrow dies, leaving all her money to Fred, but suspicions are aroused. Was her death caused by the heatwave, or the 'English Cholera' - or could arsenic-laced fly papers have something to do with it?
