    Colin Ross was accused of the ‘violation and throttling’ of a young girl, Alma Tirtschke, whose body was found near Gun Alley, Melbourne.

    Ross was found guilty and executed in April 1922.

    His defence counsel, T.C. Brennan, was convinced of his client’s innocence published his opinions in “The Gun Alley Tragedy”.

    Madame Ghurka a phrenologist in the Eastern Arcade, (and a key witness for the prosecution) wrote this extraordinary response to the deliberate and malicious lies that Brennan made regarding Madame Ghurka in The Gun Alley Tragedy.

    Octavo, 138 pages in original wrappers, with tape holding the front cover on and quite grubby. Still a good copy … and try to find another one … only second time we have seen it in a dozen or so years.

    Very scarce publication relating to a sensational Australian murder case in Melbourne in 1923
