Présentation de l'éditeur

In 1984, at the age of 78, world-renowned rose grower Hilda Murrell was found brutally murdered in the Shropshire countryside. She had just gained an approval to testify on the unsolved problems of radioactive waste at the first British planning enquiry into a new nuclear plant at Sizewell, Suffolk.The police theory that a lone, panicking burglar robbed and abducted Hilda in her own car for petty cash erupted into a sensational political conspiracy involving Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher's plans for British nuclear energy and the controversial sinking of the Argentine cruiser General Belgrano in the 1982 Falklands War. The West Mercia police took until 2005 to secrure the conviction of Andrew George as Hilda's unlikely murderer - in 1984 he was a 16 year-old truant from a local foster home who could not drive. The case spawned numerous books, plays and TV programmes as it became one of the most baffling British murders of the 20th century.Now, Hilda's nephew Robert Green - a former Royal navy Commander who operated nuclear weapons before holding a key position in Naval Intelligence during the Falklands War - tells the story of his extraordinary pursuit of the truth. Believing that Hilda was abducted by those who wanted to find out what she knew about the Falklands conflict and problems in the Sizewell nuclear power plant, and undeterred by ongoing harassment, Green exposes the implausibility of the police theory and uncovers new evidence that should have acquitted Andrew George.This is the incredible true story of Hilda Murrell - and of one man's quest to find out how and why his beloved aunt met with such a violent and bizarre death.

Biographie de l'auteur

Robert Green served for twenty years in the Royal Navy from 1962-82. As a Fleet Air Arm observer/ bombardier-navigator, he flew in Buccaneer nuclear strike aircraft and anti-submarine helicopters. On promotion to Commander in 1978, he worked in the Ministry of Defence before his final appointments as Staff Officer (Intelligence) to the Commander-in-Chief Fleet. Having taken voluntary redundancy in 1981, he was released after the 1982 Falklands War, and trained as a roof thatcher in Dorset. In 1984, the murder of his beloved aunt and mentor Hilda Murrell led him to examine and then challenge the hazards of nuclear electricity generation. This, plus the break-up of the Soviet Union, followed by the 1991 Gulf War caused him to speak out against nuclear weapons - the first ex-Commander with nuclear weapons experience to do so.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A compelling story 6 décembre 2012
Par Brian Wilkins - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Public crime, state tyranny is not something we would expect from the British government but here it is, fully documented by the author who is a high ranking British military officer and a nephew of the victim.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Compelling evidence 12 octobre 2013
Par J. Jonas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
The Author, Robert Green, is Hilda Murrell's nephew and was a commander in the Royal Navy Intelligence section, so he knows what he is talking about. MIss Murrell's murder was covered in the British Press but this book raises a series of awkward questions which need to be answered.

The book is extremely thorough and comprehensive in the details and arguments presented.

The author's years of effort have resulted in a compelling amount of evidence pointing to state-directed harassment both in Britain and subsequently in New Zealand, possible involvement in murder and a miscarriage of justice regarding Andrew George, who was convicted of the murder of Hilda Murrell years later based on controversial evidence. The details are chilling. The manner of her death is as shocking to read now as it was then.

I know Shrewsbury very well. I don't need to be persuaded about the way in which our supposedly democratic country can intimidate, harass and sometimes get rid of those it doesn't like. This book is a glimpse into the parallel world of ordinary citizens who find themselves at odds with the state and ultimately at their mercy, though in Hilda's case there was no mercy. It seems she was indeed too much of a thorn in the side of the government of the day and consequently had to be countered. The fact she was a 78 year-old woman made no difference to those responsible for her death.

This book, detailing events of nearly thirty years ago, is as relevant today for anyone else disagreeing with the state as it was then.

Notice that the writer of this book is a target of Stress Surveillance (organized stalking) according to NZ-news media. Somebody wants him to shut up.
