Stephen Ward: Scapegoat Douglas Thompson

Stephen Ward: Scapegoat
Douglas Thompson

The tragic story of the persecution, trial and death of Stephen Ward is both tortuous and infamous. Now, best-selling author Douglas Thompson has traced confidantes of Stephen Ward, speaking for the first time in more than half a century: along with newly-discovered government documents he has gathered their eyewitness accounts of Downing Street intrigue, sex orgies and dangerous liaisons. Posterity is ferociously capricious but there are still those alive who know the secrets and the true story of Stephen Ward which is brilliantly told in Scapegoat.
