One day in Paris Cyril Belshaw reported that his wife Betty had disappeared without a trace. Soon afterward her mutilated corpse was discovered concealed on a mountainside--and Cyril was charged with her murder.
This is the story of a typical Canadian academic couple--happily married, well-off, well-travelled, their children grown--whose lives go terribly wrong. Soon after the discovery of Betty Belshaw's body, Swiss police began to reconstruct a chain of events--including Cyril Belshaw's marital infidelity--that ultimately led to his incarceration and trial for her killing. After a torturous court case, the verdict rendered was neither guilty nor innocent--Cyril Belshaw was acquitted "by reason of doubt." Doubts as to who killed Betty Belshaw remain, to this day.
By Reason of Doubt is a gripping true-crime saga that reads like a mystery novel.
