A seminal work
on 11 January 2015
I've been very interested in the mystery of the Flannan Isles for a number of years and have found the facts difficult to separate from the fiction and this book is a real definitive source of information. The author has meticulously researched the subject with a real flare for establishing even the smallest details, a real credit to him. I found the picture of the three missing keepers and the superintendent very haunting and visceral, a real treat for any enthusiast of the truth.
There were a few lengthy and somewhat unnecessary asides which seem to stand alone without really connecting to the overall theme, and the conclusion could have been a bit more detailed hence the rating.
