In May, 1631, the 2nd Earl of Castlehaven was executed for abetting the rape of his wife and for sodomitical relations with his servants. A fantastic exploration into a house of gross disorder, the trial revolved around myriad sexual couplings across gender and class, forced rape and public adultery, and always the pursuit of property and title. A scandal worthy of today's tabloids, Herrup's investigative history is both a whodunit and an expose on 17-century Britain's changing sexual and political mores.
