Richard Tomlinson first came across the Landru case in the early 1980s while trawling through old newspapers in Paris’s Bibliothèque Nationale. Landru’s Secret is the result of his long quest to discover the real identities of Landru’s supposedly besotted fiancées and the truth about why and how they disappeared. An award-winning journalist and author, he recently published an acclaimed biography of the Victorian cricketing hero W.G. Grace.
