About the Author

Jane Robins is a distinguished writer and journalist. Her previous book, The Magnificent Spilsbury and the Case of the Brides in the Bath, was a critically acclaimed account of a gripping series of murders and the birth of forensic science.


Jane Robins has written an endlessly enjoyable book, which reads like an Agatha Christie. - Craig Brown, Mail on SundayShe tells the story with great brio, and a real feeling for the vanished social milieu in which Adams operated. - Lynn Barber, Sunday TimesThe case against Adams as a serial killer is a classic of British crime, but Jane Robins takes nothing for granted. She re-examines the evidence, consults modern experts (some of whom worked on the enquiry into the activities of Dr Harold Shipman) and presents her own perturbing conclusions. On the basis of this book, would you have convicted the curiously-behaved Dr Adams? - SagaVividly characterised, wonderfully atmospheric and thoroughly riveting. - Daily MailThis is a compelling, very well-written story. It will feed the British love of a good murder mystery. Robins gives her own verdict in the final chapter but her readers are the jury. - ScotsmanOne to keep you alert on the beach. - ObserverA compelling account of a murder mystery. - Oldie
