Title: Who Shot Percy Toplis? The True Story of the Monocled Mutineer
Description: Carlisle, Bookcase. 2018. (ISBN: 9781912181087) Soft, 8vo. Percy Toplis was a flamboyant conman with a long list of aliases who avoided detection by hiding in plain sight. In 1920 he murdered a taxi driver and went on the run, shooting a policeman who tried to arrest him, sparking one of the biggest manhunts in British history. Shot dead while walking along a Cumbrian road, a jury took just three minutes to decide that he was justifiably killed by the police. But why did his wounds tell a different story to the official version of events, and why did a civilian huntsman became known locally as 'The Man Who Shot Percy Toplis'?. Brand New.
