Product description

Review

Hamilton evokes the era very well, weaving the atmosphere and practical details seamlessly into the narrative. At every turn one is struck by the contrast between the 1930s and the present day, especially in terms of communication technology and social mobility. Although phone calls were traceable from public call boxes, detectives had little other than their wits and circumstantial evidence to help them solve crimes. The essential story, however, is timeless. I particularly liked the production values and cover design of this book - the chess board in a subdued, slightly sinister colour way, with an outline of a dead body and a splash of blood, is very effective - - Historical Novel Society

About the Author

Alan Hamilton finds that real events, where there is 
a mystery or something unexplained, leave so much to the imagination they give the writer of fiction license to make it up. At heart he's a conspiracy theorist though his head tells him accident is usually more likely - albeit far less interesting. As an antidote to the urge to write creatively, Alan is 
a publisher's editor for non-fiction, academic books and journal articles. He lives by the sea in the South West of the UK. His hobbies are cooking and cryptic crosswords in the national newspapers, winning first prize twice in ten years.
