Reviews

'Gripping' - 5 out of 6 stars
<i>Time Out</I>
'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.'
Christopher Sylvesters, <i>Financial Times</I>
Meticulously researched and superbly readable
Robert Douglas-Fairhurst, <i>Daily Telegraph</I>
'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.'
Bryan Appleyard, <i>The Sunday Times</I>
'An extraordinary book'
Andrew Marr, <i>Start the Week</I>
