MEDIA REVIEWS
'An extraordinary book' * Andrew Marr, Start the Week *
'Gripping' - 5 out of 6 stars * Time Out *
Meticulously researched and superbly readable * Robert Douglas-Fairhurst, Daily Telegraph *
'Streatfield does an important service by bringing this curious phase to our attention again. Vivid descriptions of key moments in the story are interspersed with analysis.' * Christopher Sylvesters, Financial Times *
'Marvellously engrossing . . . Streatfield's narrative control cannot be faulted. You know where every story is going, but how it gets there is always a thrill. His research is formidable.' * Bryan Appleyard, The Sunday Times *
