A Secret Between Gentlemen: Suspects, Strays, and Guests is the second volume in this biographical trilogy.It seeks to fill a large gap in the account - the names and histories of the other gentlemen involved in Lord Battersea's scandal.
Detailed within are the life stories of thirty-nine suspects, both prominent and obscure, who are known to have been friends or associates of Lord Battersea. Also included is material relevant to the background of the Scandal, including a transcript of The Pleasaunce Visitors Book.
For anyone with a fascination for the story, this 606 page volume, including 50 pages of photographs, provides additional illuminating context for that once-hidden story of 1902, and the lives it changed forever.
This is the revised and expanded Third Edition.
