Society Members Write Books-3

Members of the Society for the History of Navy Medicine are active in their scholarship and publishing. Member Annette Finley-Croswhite and her associate Gayle K Brunelle have recently published Murder in the Metro: Laetitia Toureaux and the Cagoule in 1930s France . It’s a real spy and mystery story set in pre-World War II Paris.

The book reads like a mystery novel, but it’s based on the real life (and death) of young factory worker Toureaux, who was found murdered–the first ever on the Paris Metro–in 1937. The case was never solved.

Historians Finley-Croswhite and Brunelle have well and truly done their historical homework in piecing together information from French government documents to tell a tale of conspiracy and intrigue. Their historical detective work actually offer leads to the identity of the murderer.
