For once the blurb lives up to expectation. This is a real life whodunnit.
Solicitors' Journal
Roger Wilkes's seminal book lays out the facts . . . one of the great unsolved murders of the century.
Craig Taylor, Guardian
Engrossingly readable.
Christopher Pym
I call it the impossible murder because Wallace couldn't have done it. And neither could anyone else.
Raymond Chandler
It is a formidable, indeed a damning indictment and Wilkes presents the result of his detective work with journalistic panache.
P. D. James, Times Literary Supplement
If you're given to nightmares, read no further. Liverpool's notorious Wallace case is straight out of Poe or Kafka.
