Pamela Werner, a 20-year-old Englishwoman, met a grisly fate in 1937 Peking (now Beijing). Her widowed father spent the rest of his life searching for answers, with no luck. Decades later, Shanghai resident and correspondent Paul French became fascinated with the story. The result is his new book, Midnight in Peking: How the Murder of a Young Englishwoman Haunted the Last Days of Old China.

In this installment of Prime Time Radio, Paul French discusses how Peking's upper and lower class may have played a key role in Pamela Werner's unsolved murder.
