‘I liked the way the difference between fiction and NF was so clearly signalled. A model for others to follow, I think!’

‘… I was genuinely interested to find out what happened in the end, and satisfied with the fidelity of the ending.’

An ‘intriguing narrative’ … ‘a kind of fictionalised history which the author manages most successfully, adding zest to the meagre facts without compromising a scholarly foundation.’
