The conspiracy concerns the uncanny death of John Ruthven, 3rd Earl of Gowrie, which is shrouded in mystery to this day. This analysis of the notorious event will appeal to those with an interest in historical mysteries, and it is a veritable must-read for those looking for answers to the conspiracy. The chapters of this book include: “The Mystery and the Evidence”, “The Slaughter of the Ruthvens”, “The King’s Own Narrative”, “The Kings Narrative II”, “Henderson’s Narrative”, “The Strange Case of Mr. Robert Oliphant”, etcetera.
