This review is from: The Suspicions of Mr Whicher: or the Murder at Road Hill House (Paperback)
I have watched this book sail in the seas of sensational sales for months and wondered why it was there. Now I know.
It is the best book of its kind I ever read. Perhaps it is the only book if its kind I ever read. It is difficult to define.
The characters reflect those in a whodunnit and yet they are real. Kate Summerscale paints them with warts and all, even the eponymous Mr. Whicher.
Then just when you think she's told you whodunnit you start thinking who whomightadunnit instead.
Baffled? Read the book.
