I have to admit that my copy of Dancing For The Hangman sat on the shelf for quite a while after I received it as a present from a friend who knew I liked Martin Edwards other novels.It looked at me reproachfuly until curiosity overcame me.
As soon as I started reading it I could not put it down.If you already know the authors Liverpool and Lake District novels then you are in for a suprise (if you dont why not!?)
As expected from Martin Edwards, meticulous research helps the reader understand the facts of the case but it is the characterisation of Dr Hawley Crippen his wives and lover that make this book a fantastic read. Passion,intrigue,deception,vanity,greed,and of course murder!!What more can you ask for?
