INFAMOUS IMPOSTOR? by Derek Forrest. Subtitled `The case of the Tichborne Claimant'. Was the Claimant an impostor, or not? In any case, did he receive a fair trial? Prof. Forrest tells this engrossing true story with assured lightness of touch and irony, and with an emphasis on the forensic implications of the case. This merit of the work has been recognized by Michael Mansfield QC, who has contributed an excellent Foreword.
