mpm-headerThis is the tale of a ghastly pair of opportunists in Victorian London. Frederick Manning turned a blind eye to his wife, Marie, while she dispensed her favours to a rich customs official, Patrick O’Connor.

Inevitably, they were caught, and provided yet another job for William Calcraft, the Lord High Executioner.
