Dr Crippen book complete.

Completed book on Crippen. Enjoyed the research. A wonderful phew moment - honeymoon period. 
Just one niggling nugget remains:
Dr Crippen had lived in Goldfield, Nevada, prior to going to London and in the famous gold camp had mining property. There he was accused of killing his partner, but a friendly jury freed him.
Only one source for this so it's likely the article is at best embroidered. 
Dr Crippen was still resident in Salt Lake, May 1892. So if he met and married Cora in New York it was a hurricane romance! and a lie. Just one more curiosity, where was Myron, Dr Crippen's father in 1891? Ardessa lived on her own at salt Lake and made a living dressmaking. .Where was Myron? Two irritating nuggets ... 
I'll keep digging - can always add the information later if I do publish now.

Congratulations! Sometimes it's the research that we writers like the most. As you say, you can keep digging and update the book later. Wonderful Amazon. Good luck.
