A genre changer for the better.
on 12 August 2014
I've been a fan of true crime for a long time and was excited to see one about an area I knew well but quite frankly, whether you know east Anglia or not, this book is a masterpiece.
Mixing beautiful writing styles with rare and exclusive facts this is one of the greatest books I've read and I'd recommend it to anyone who's interested in the genre or murder mysteries in general.
Last but not least a new feature Elphick uses that I'd not seen before are the fascinating legal sections which assess how the cases had affected the law or would have been different in another time!
All in all, this is a truly great read that's smart interesting exciting and even witty. I will urge everyone I know to dig into this book 5/5.
