About the Author

Richard Tomlinson first came across Landru in the early 1980s when he was researching a French history Ph.D. at the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris. He did not believe the prosecution case and has been exploring l'affaire Landru ever since. After completing his doctorate at Cambridge University, Richard pursued an award-winning career as a a journalist in China and Europe. He is an acclaimed author, whose most recent book, a biography of the cricketer W.G. Grace, was hailed as "magnificent" (Daily Telegraph), "compelling" (Mail on Sunday) and "my biography of the year" (Evening Standard).

Reviews

"A shocking story of deception and murder...This is true-crime writing at its best."
--Dean Jobb "Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine"
"The human drama plays out alongside portraits of Paris during and after Landru's spree: the bombed streets, heartfelt notes sent via the underground whoosh of the pneumatique mail system, the 'curtain raiser' headlines of a national press wringing its hands in barely suppressed glee."
--Zoe Apostolides "The Spectator"
"The untold story of a serial killer who preyed on ten lonely war widows in World War One France... lifts the lid on the life of Henri Desire Landru, the most notorious serial killer in French criminal history."
--Amie Gordon "Daily Mail"
