Absolutely beautiful & sensitive,
This review is from: Death of a Murderer (Hardcover)
I am already an enormous fan of Rupert Thomson's work but in Death of a Murderer he has taken me to deep and scary places to look back at my past and make sense of it. The Moors Murders were certainly a part of my growing up and like any sensational headline-plastered killing leave the world a changed place. Rupert manages to see a lifetime in a day amid the final hours of Myra Hindley's mortuary stay and to question our own existence. This book will stay with me for a very long time and deserves to be read and re-read.
