A Conspiracy of Crowns: The True Story of the Duke of Windsor and the Murder of Sir Harry Oakes by Alfred de Marigny

In July 1943 the scorched and bloody body of multi-millionaire businessman, Sir Harry Oakes, was found in a partly burned bed in his home in the Bahamas. He had died of wounds to the head caused by a weapon never found or clearly identified. Four small, identical holes in a pattern almost square had penetrated the mastoid bone above his left ear. Within forty-eight hours, after the most cursory of investigations, Oakes' son-in-law, Alfred de Marigny, was arrested and charged with the murder. The trial lasted thirty-two days. Once it was over, even though de Marigny was acquitted, his life lay in ruins. The authorities in Nassau had advised all British and friendly territories that de Marigny was to be regarded as a murderer at large, and it was four years before he could get a visa to enter the United States, where he finally made his home. Now, for the first time, de Marigny tells his own story, revealing what really happened in the Bahamas in July 1943 and in the months that followed. Even as war engulfed the globe, Nassau was a magnet for society's rich and spoiled, presided over by the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. It is against this extraordinary background of wealth and privilege that the story unfolds, a complex tale of business intrigue, broken promises and acts of betrayal; of currency smuggling and conduct close to treason, and of one man's untiring efforts to clear his name.
