This is the ultimate cold case, a 120 year old mystery hidden in plain sight.
This book pieces the evidence together that William James Shepherd was most likely the eldest son of King George V.
The case is built-up and includes clues that lead to a clear path forward - readied for a compelling conclusion and full resolution to the mystery.
This is a story of intrigue and challenge about a man who left enduring clues during his lifetime about his origins. They were left in a subliminal manner, and at times it was like participating in a movie somewhat like the “Da Vinci Code”, with clue after clue being uncovered together with their meaning.
The evidence is presented about William Shepherd and how he mysteriously arrives in Australia via unassisted paid passage on a ship having just turned 17, with enough money in his pocket that enables him to purchase a farm - within a year. He also arrives with the skills to be able to play the Double Bass and then goes on to become Australia’s No. 1 performer.
And yet in 1901, just six years earlier he is Census listed as a “Pauper” (age 10) in a London Workhouse orphanage straight out of the pages of the book “Oliver Twist”.
William throughout his life, due to his looks and mannerisms, is often compared to King George V’s acknowledged sons - King Edward VIII and King George VI (i.e. the man portrayed in the movie "The King's Speech").
Even today some of William’s descendants continue to have comparisons made with various members of the current British Royal Family.
DNA tests are used to set a test to prove the link.
The suspense as to whether it is true or not – and the patience needed to try to obtain a DNA match, makes for a very interesting twist.
So based on the evidence collected and presented in this book, Was William James Shepherd indeed “THE KING’S SON”?
