Publisher Oxford University Press, 1980}

John Wrake, author of Looking for the Painter, has gathered together the results of some 35 years of original research into his family, together with the labours of others writing about Faversham and information culled from national and county records, to formulate an intriguing theory as to the identity of the painter and how he remained anonymous - and unprosecuted after the murder.John writes with authority and can trace his ancestry back as far as his 16th century Faversham namesake, John Wrake, Mayor in 1550.Now living in Maresfield in East Sussex, he joined the Army in 1945 and was commissioned from Sandhurst in 1948.He served in Malaya, the UK and Germany, before resigning his commission in 1956 to train for ministry in the Church of England. He was ordained in 1959 and after service in several parishes spent eight years as Director of the Warwickshire Rural Community Council.With a family of three children, he retired in 1993.

Looking for the Painter is now on sale at the Fleur de Lis, price 2.95 (3.95 by post to UK).An attractive chapbook-style cover by Jack Salmon features the main buildings involved in the story John has to tell - Arden's House, the old NW tower of Faversham Church and 6 Market Place.
