For 75 years the grisly and mysterious murder of a beautiful young woman has gone unsolved. Until now, perhaps.

It’s 1937 in the Chinese city then known as Peking. The victim is nineteen-year-old Pamela Werner, daughter of a former British consul to China. She has not just been killed, her body has been horribly mutilated.

A Chinese detective teams with one from Britain, but they hit a stone wall — and then history takes a tragic turn as Japanese invaders take Peking, and the investigation into Pamela Werner’s murder gets left behind.

Now historian and China expert Paul French reopens the case, reviews long-forgotten files and notes — and solves the case. His book is called “Midnight in Peking.”
