Dr Gramshaw was a successful family doctor in Yorkshire for thirty-five years, until his final desperate actions
brought his professional and personal life crashing down around him. It was Easter 1908 when he called at the
Glynn Hotel in York to attend to a young woman called Margaret Brown, who had been his patient before
and who wanted his advice again. By the end of the month, Margaret was dead and a Coroner's inquest
was uncovering a lot of uncomfortable information about the young governess and the doctor who tried to
help her.

This is a fascinating and shocking story of love and lust, success and deceit, crimes and lies, adultery, bigamy
and insanity. The events in it are true, reconstructed by detailed research into public records. As the truth
emerges about the lies, deceits and crimes that infiltrated Dr Gramshaw's life, we are left to wonder: did anyone
know about these before the final tragedy occurred? Should his family have seen what was happening? And
why, when he was so popular, successful and respected that even after his exposure 1000 people attended
his funeral, did Dr Gramshaw throw it all away so recklessly?
