This book is not quite what I expected, but was all the better for that!
I came to Murder on the Home Front via a BBC Radio 4 adaptation a few years ago and had been searching for the book ever since. I ordered the Kindle edition in December 2012 and downloaded it the day it was released.
I was expecting the book to read more like the radio adaptation, how wrong I was.
The book is beautifully written, goes into great detail about a number of post mortems with which the author was involved and gives a wonderful insight into the lives of the people involved, on both sides of the law and of the time.
It has both gruesome and hilarious moments. Fascinating reading.
Murder on the Home Front has been made into a two part television series that is due to be shown in April 2013.
Molly Lefebure died aged 93, just before publication of this edition. What a wonderful legacy.
