Summary
The lives of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and country lawyer George Edalji intersect when Doyle becomes interested in investigating the case of Edalji who has been wrongfully convicted of writing obscene letters and mutilating cattle in a case clearly influenced by racial prejudice
Summary
Arthur and George grow up worlds and miles apart in late nineteenth-century Britain: Arthur in shabby-genteel Edinburgh; George the son of a vicar in a small Staffordshire village. Arthur becomes a doctor; George a solicitor. As the new century begins, the unlikely pair are brought together by a series of events which made sensational headlines as the Great Wriley Outrages. We follow each man's journey through outrageous accusation and unrivaled success, through faith and perseverance and dogged self-recrimination, whether in the dock awaiting complete disgrace or at the height of fame while desperately in love with a woman not his wife.
