Review and mention of talk given by Richard Wilson in Oxford Mail, 31 October 2005
Extract adapted by Zoe Brennan from Titanic Express in the Daily Mail
"I have watched in growing admiration how, with dogged persistence, Richard Wilson has conducted a singular crusade, not just to bring his sister's murderers to justice, but to understand who they were and why they killed her." Jon Swain, "Sunday Times"--Sanford Lakoff
"incredibly moving" Ziauddin Sardar, "Independent"--Sanford Lakoff
'His (Wilson) honesty carries the reader with him. Intimate books charting an individual's quest only work if the author is prepared to show himself, warts and all. This Wilson does unflinchingly. ... In his anguish, Wilson speaks to and for all who cannot easily put loss behind us as if nothing had happened.'--Sanford Lakoff "Independent, The "
'...Now her brother, Richard Wilson, has looked back over her short life in a moving new book, Titanic Express' Hoddesdon and Broxbourne Mercury--Sanford Lakoff
"Do you fester in hatred and seek revenge? Do you wallow in pity? Do you forgive? Do you blank it out? Or do you seek answers and justice? For much of the period I have known him, Richard Wilson has had to cope with precisely these issues. Today, he tells me he thinks he has found most of the answers after more than four years of painful investigation." - Jon Swain, "Sunday Times". "incredibly moving" - Ziauddin Sardar, "Independent". "An astonishing chronicle" - Bronwen Maddox, "The Times". "In his anguish, Wilson speaks to and for all who cannot easily put loss behind us and get on with life as if nothing has happened." - Peter Stanford, "Independent". On December 28th 2000, Charlotte Wilson, a 27 year old VSO worker, was killed when her bus, the inauspiciously-named Titanic Express, was ambushed in war-torn Burundi. The attackers were members of the Hutu-extremist FNL, a faction linked to those responsible for the Rwandan genocide. Twenty others died with Charlotte, including her Burundian fiance. One of the few survivors was given a chilling message for the Burundian government: "We're going to kill them all and there's nothing you can do"."Titanic Express" is a political detective story, a memoir of grief and a moving portrait of an extraordinary woman who died at the very moment she had found fulfilment. In gripping detail, Charlotte's brother Richard charts his painful struggle to unravel what happened that day, and to understand the complex and brutal history that lay behind it.
