Between 1917 and 1922, the residents of a small French town were terrorised by an anonymous letter writer, who exposed secrets and made allegations. Each letter was signed: ‘The Eye of the Tiger’. The rumour mill was churning at a diabolical rate – careers ended, marriages became strained and eventually two people lost their lives. Investigators took five years to unmask the author, a local secretary by the name of Angèle Laval. This poison pen letter case became known as the Raven of Tulle Affair.
