Beyond the Badlands – Investigations into the Pamela Werner murder case

When Paul French opened an unlabeled bookcase at the archives in England he had no idea of what he would find. The documents he discovered would later become the background of his bestselling historical murder novel “Midnight in Peking”.

The novel sheds light on parts of the 1930s Beijing history that had not before received much attention. Places like the Badlands, the French ice-skating ring, the fox tower and of course the murder victim, Pamela Werner, herself - all became household names to a broader international audience.

During the last half year Beijing Postcards has taken a fresh look on the murder case. We managed to find new sources and new perspectives to add to the narrative. In this process we have uncovered a lot of documents not used in the book. Among them a hitherto unpublished 150 pages long Chinese police report. We call our project - Beyond the Badlands.
