Booksellers never know what they might find in an estate sale. When our man finds the tools of one of England’s last hangmen, along with the diary of a condemned man he executed – a diary that points the finger in a disturbing direction – he knows he has a mystery to solve. Was there a miscarriage of British justice? Did the wrong man die at the noose?

Interesting and thought provoking

 on 18 July 2017
By Closet Romantic
I really enjoyed this book. The story was interesting and included quite a bit from my favourite genre, war fiction. I wasn’t expecting that. The plot worked for me, the ending was good (it didn’t feel like a rushed job as some reviewers thought). And there are a few things to look into now I’ve finished it. I shall look for the WW2 poetry, thank you for the reference. I Googled the date of the last hanging in Britain whilst I was reading the book, and was surprised that I was 13 then. I can’t remember it making much impact at the time – perhaps that is what ‘they’ wanted. Thank you Mr Spurrier for an interesting and thought provoking read. I hope you are going to write another one soon.

Pulls you in

A stunning read!

A coin for the hangman & £1 for a book well written with empathy & sympathy for the characters & period that it is written. Although (& I’m not convinced) fiction I would put it on the school curriculum alongside Cider With Rosie. I hope the author approves of this review

Fascinating and utterly gripping.

‘A Coin for the Hangman’ is emotionally grim in a few places, yet the potential miscarriage of justice, albeit fictional, is absolutely fascinating and utterly gripping.

It has a very human face and a beautiful authenticity of time and place that I would not …

This was an intriguing pretext for a novel and the fact that the bookseller and author’s name were the same made it more intriguing as I began it. It was extremely well written and the plot was well constructed and layered, although at times I felt there was too much detail which was superfluous to the story. However, the characters were well drawn and overall this was a brave topic told in an insightful and skillful manner. It served to highlight the injustice and barbarity of this form of punishment and deserves to be widely read
