Summary Littlehampton in the 1920s was menaced by a bizarre poison-pen case, which required the attention of a leading Metropolitan Police detective, and resulted in four criminal trials before the real culprit was finally punished. The Littlehampton Libels untangles this mystery story, exploring the inner lives of an English working-class community
