Blood on the Page
with Thomas Harding
Part of the Hampstead and Highgate Literary Festival
In June 2006, the body of Allan Chappelow, an award-winning writer and photographer, was found buried under four feet of paper in his house on Downshire Hill in Hampstead. Wang Yam, a Chinese dissident, was tried ‘in camera’ and convicted of the murder, yet he continues to protest his innocence. Bestselling author and acclaimed journalist, Thomas Harding’s latest book Blood on the Page is a shocking and revelatory investigation into ‘the greatest whodunit of recent years’, an extraordinary tale of isolation, deception, espionage and brutal violence, stretching from the quiet streets of north London to the Palace of Westminster and beyond. Chaired by Jenny Kleeman.
