Abstract:

THE CURIOUS HABITS OF DR ADAMS brilliantly brings to life the atmosphere of post-war England, and uses a wealth of new documents to follow the twists and turns of an extraordinary Scotland Yard murder inquiry. The July 1957 inquest, which investigated the part played by Dr John Bodkin Adams in the death of one of his patients, brought to the surface years of whispered suspicions that had swept through the town of Eastbourne. The doctor's alarming influence over the lives, deaths and finances of wealthy widows had not gone unnoticed - it was rumoured that the family doctor had been on a killing spree that spanned decades and involved 300 cases ... This book casts a chilling light on a man reputed to be one of England's most prolific serial killers.
