She kept it running even when war broke out in 1939 and despite bombs and blackouts, the Berkeley Club remained a south coast magnet where war weary men and women could dance to the latest tunes. Jackie took full advantage of her beauty, dancing skills and popularity. Brightons glitterati flocked to her door. Then in November, 1940, her glamourous world was shattered. She was found dead outside the club. The countrys leading pathologist, Sir Bernard Spilsbury, was called in. The inquest jury returned their verdict: Murder by person or persons unknown. Jackie was the first wife of William Buckley, the authors father.
