Summary
Lucan, part 1: While researching a book about London's posh gambling scene of the 1960s and '70s, writer John Pearson becomes transfixed by the story of the missing-and maybe murderous-John Bingham, 7th Earl of Lucan. Pearson delves into Lucan's world as the high-born lord struggles to keep up appearances amid staggering gambling losses.
Lucan, part 2: The battered body of the nanny lies in the kitchen, and Lucan has vanished. As a national manhunt begins, the lord's aristocratic circle closes ranks. With his wife offering damning evidence, Lucan is tried in absentia.
The trial of Lord Lucan: Prosecutors present the evidence, witnesses attest to events, and Lucan has the chance to defend himself at last. In the end, a jury of real British citizens gives a verdict on the infamous crime.
