    There was a film made too. The man from the pru and a dramatisation with Geoffrey Yates in it as a copper.

    It would appear from a Radio City programme I remember listening to that a Richard Gordon Parry was responsible for the murder but died in Wales just as they were about to interview him.

    Vincent Burke does a good take on the case in his crimes dvd but leaves it unclosed, not even mentioning the Parry connection which I found disappointing.
    I've read that book Ged, really enjoyable. Am I right in remembering that Murray concluded by saying Wallace was the murderer and had got the timing absolutely spot on, discrediting the evidence of a milk or paper boy by saying he could have misread the clock when saying what time he had seen Julia alive.

    The man From the Pru was released on video in USA but doesnt appear to have been done so here.

    Ste, I dunno what Murray said mate cos my book's by Murphy - I know, I know nit pickin' agen - soz ha ha.

    Yeah, it was such a good book up to that last chapter, then he let me down by actually saying he thought it was Wallace but the thought of him in the nak doin' his arl girl then having to get a bath and dried when there was no evidence for this was too much for me to believe, especially with the way Parry acted that night in the garage with the bloodied glove and what he said to the young apprentice. Just goes to show you that the garage owner must've known all along but kept schtum just because Parry was a 'good customer'

    Wallace was a stoic character and his calmness made him even more of a suspect, I mean who sits there calmly lighting a ciggie unless she's gonna be insured for a million and it's coming your way?

    I remember watching it on TV, but whether it was called "The Man from the Pru" or whether it was a documentary, I can't remember.
