Piu Marie Eatwell studied English at Oxford and is a trained barrister. Her first book, They Eat Horses, Don't They, was published by Head of Zeus in August 2013.
'Eatwell has undertaken a mountain of research, yet although her story is factual there is much artistry in the telling' Historical Novel Society. 'An utterly enthralling story and a light on the underside of Victorian and Edwardian life' The Bookseller/We Love This Book. 'We can't recommend this enough' All About History. 'An astonishing mixture of formidable research and great storytelling' Tim Bentinck, actor, voice of David Archer in BBC series The Archers, 12th Earl of Portland and distant cousin of the 5th Duke. 'A meticulous examination of a late Victorian/early Edwardian cause celebre ... The rigorous research is the book's strength. Eatwell often digresses to insert background, enriching the narrative with juicy details from the time period, or to note other sensational cases' Publishers' Weekly. 'A lively and well-researched treat for fans of real-life historical mysteries' Family Tree Magazine. 'The Druce-Portland case gripped Edwardian England, and you can see why. An eccentric Duke, a mysterious claimant to the title, a long legal battle to open a grave in pursuit of a huge fortune - it's a thoroughly engrossing story, in the best traditions of Mr Whicher' Nicholas Best, author of Tennis and the Masai and Five Days that Shocked the World. 'A brilliant forensic analysis of the intriguing Druce case, and wonderfully revealing of the many layers beneath Victorian respectability' Mr Justice Haddon-Cave, judge on Richard III reinterment case. 'A lively account of the light shone on the lies, deceit and hypocrisy of Victorian society' The Times.
