Murder in the Family
How the Search for My Mother's Killer Led to My FatherBook - 2020
Carol Blackstock died at age 24 in 1959 - poisoned by arsenic - but the cause of her death remained shrouded in mystery for decades. Jeff's father George Blackstock was a career diplomat in Canada's foreign service. A damning autopsy report about arsenic poisoning leads Jeff Blackstock and his sister to horrifying revelations about their father. A compelling story of a high-society murder, a heartbreaking tale of emotionally neglected children, and an inquiry into the power and privilege of the Anglo upper classes of the time.
