Exceptional Book about an extraordinary case, 2 Mar. 2013
This book is an fascinating read- a real life thriller and a genuine page-turner about a forgotten true crime. The period detail is amazing and the author's insights into the characters and their motivations (even Heath's) is exceptional. The new research into the case and the revealing information about Heath's schooling and his RAF experience shed a whole new light on what is both a gripping, but also very unsettling case. I have to agree with other reviewers here, that the description of the victims' lives is also very detailed and deeply moving. The final chapter, chronicling how this case affected both the victims' families- and Heath's is genuinely tragic. I can't think of many British True Crime books that have used the crime as a tool for dissecting an entire moment in history. An extraordinarily good book.
