Reviews

`A case study in human frailty, jealousy and desire ... fascinating.' * The Times, Best Books of 2019 *
`One of the most infamous and intriguing cases of the 20th century is brought to vivid life in this immaculately researched and totally gripping account. Sean O'Connor unfolds the tangled events at the Villa Madeira with a craftsman's skill, laying bare its hothouse atmosphere of regret, passion and suburban despair.' -- Mark Gatiss
'Meticulously researched...superbly evocative and gripping...a narrative that builds with the intensity of an approaching thunderstorm.' * The Spectator *
`Sean O'Connor can't resist striking a theatrical note in this "biography of murder".' * Sunday Times *
