'Gripping' - 5 out of 6 stars
'Streatfield does an important service by bringing this curious phase to our attention again. Vivid descriptions of key moments in the story are interspersed with analysis.'
Meticulously researched and superbly readable
'Marvellously engrossing . . . Streatfield's narrative control cannot be faulted. You know where every story is going, but how it gets there is always a thrill. His research is formidable.'
'An extraordinary book'
