'Superbly captures the shattered mood in this era, and shows us ordinary men and women grappling with new definitions of good and evil ... Murder At Wrotham Hill is more than a pacy whodunit ... It reads, above all, like an unsettling dream' Kathryn Hughes, Mail on Sunday. * Mail on Sunday *
'Evokes these drab, joyless [postwar] years with painful brilliance, so that one can almost feel the shabby poverty and smell the foggy, coal-dust-filled air' Juliet Gardiner, Spectator. * Spectator *
'Souhami's dissection of the murder is completely engrossing in its insistence that fatality is about fallible human beings' The Times. * The Times *
