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.

A hugely satisfying read

 on 3 August 2016
By Yvonne Barlow
An unusual story that takes you to places you have never been – the hangman’s home, the condemned prisoner’s cell and the execution chamber. In balance, we also follow our protagonist through a tender childhood. The story is drawn together by the bookseller who follows the clues to bring it all together. This is a novel with the depth to make you wonder and the detail that makes you want to know even more.

but I’m so glad I read it

Wow, what a marvellous read! It isn’t the sort of subject I would normally choose, but I’m so glad I read it. The writing was accomplished and kept me gripped throughout. I hope this author gets the recognition he deserves.

Unputdownable

I thought I would just treat myself to a half-hour read before getting on with the jobs I needed to do. Two hours later I forced myself back into ‘getting on’ with things. This is a wonderful book. Sensitively written and painstaking in doing justice to the subject matter. A really interesting and captivating read.

A THOUGHT-PROVOKING READ

 on 5 September 2016
By davidw
I read this more or less in one sitting and am still thinking about it several weeks after finishing. There is – deliberately – a lot of strands left to your own imagination and interpretation and I found that an interesting and unusual approach. I look forward to reading the authors next book!

Pulls you in

By S. Bean
A book, which from the first page pulls you in and along with the story. Excellent read, I couldn’t put it down.
