Description - The Scoundrel Harry Larkyns and his Pitiless Killing by the Photographer Eadweard Muybridge by Rebecca Gowers

SHORTLISTED FOR THE HWA NON-FICTION CROWN

Diamond thief, guerrilla fighter, spy, decorated hero, bohemian rogue and lover of several notorious women - all describe Major Harry Larkyns, who has long been dismissed as merely a liar and a cheat, famous only for being shot dead in 1874 by the strange photographer Eadweard Muybridge. But has history properly understood either the killer or his victim? Part biography, part crime investigation, THE SCOUNDREL HARRY LARKYNS uncovers some extraordinary truths - riveting, tragic and utterly astonishing, this is historical detective work at its finest.

Buy The Scoundrel Harry Larkyns and his Pitiless Killing by the Photographer Eadweard Muybridge by Rebecca Gowers from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
