The Kelsey Outrage: The Crime of the Century by Alison Louise Hubbard is based on a true story. Cathleen Kelsey had long protected her eccentric Bohemian poet of a brother, but when Charles Kelsey doesn’t come home one night, Cathleen discovers that he has been wrongly accused of molesting a girl and has been tarred and feathered. Cathleen thinks Sam Royals, the girl’s wealthy fiancé, is behind it and decides to investigate for herself when she decides that the police aren’t up to it. Successful as a detective, Cathleen uncovers evidence that points elsewhere, but she’s up against some powerful people who don’t want the truth coming out. Will she clear Charles’ name, or will his name be forever tarred and feathered, like he was?
The Kelsey Outrage: The Crime of the Century by Alison Louise Hubbard is adapted from a true story and is very well written. Alison carried out a great deal of research on the original crime, looking into every aspect to prepare herself to write this book. It’s a story of love and lies that digs deep into the truth, discovering buried evidence and a story of the lengths people will go to cover something up. Although it is based on a true story, it is fiction and has an amazingly strong female protagonist, a woman who will stop at nothing to get to the truth. All the characters are equally well-developed, each with a story to tell, and the tale is told from several perspectives. This is an excellent book, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Looking forward to more from an author with a real flair for storytelling.
