   schema:description "On 4 August 1985 a horrific crime took place at White House Farm - the murder of wealthy farmers Nevill and June Bamber, their daughter Sheila and her two young sons. Their son Jeremy Bamber was convicted of the murders in October 1986 but has always protested his innocence. Is he a victim of one of the worst miscarriages of justice in our time or a cold, calculating killer who continues to exert control from behind bars? Drawing on previously unpublished documentation and interviews with those involved in the case, including Jeremy Bamber himself, this is an absorbing and disturbing account of this highly complex case. Carol Ann Lee describes the years of rising tension in the family that culminated in the killings and gives insights into the characters of those involved as well as leading the reader step by step through the evidence. She sets the crime against the historical context, showing how Bamber was a product of Thatcher's eighties, a brash outsider who believed he could and should have it all. Full of revelations, fair and meticulous its reporting, The Murders at White House Farm is a compelling read."@en ;
