Newspapermen: Observer review by Peter Preston

A barren baron

Observer review: Peter Preston

Andrew Marr

Sunday Times

Ruth Dudley Edwards has adorned with anecdotal dazzle a psychological thriller in which intrigue is flecked with madness.

Edward Pearce

Glasgow Herald

A thoroughly entertaining book.
