'A brilliantly formulated and well-written account of a tawdry murder that shines a bright light on postwar austerity England' Jenny Diski, London Review of Books.
'Souhami's hypnotic narrative grips throughout' Daily Telegraph.
'Superbly captures the shattered mood in this era, and shows us ordinary men and women grappling with new definitions of good and evil ... Murder At Wrotham Hill is more than a pacy whodunit ... It reads, above all, like an unsettling dream' Kathryn Hughes, Mail on Sunday.
'Evokes these drab, joyless [postwar] years with painful brilliance, so that one can almost feel the shabby poverty and smell the foggy, coal-dust-filled air' Juliet Gardiner, Spectator.
'Souhami's dissection of the murder is completely engrossing in its insistence that fatality is about fallible human beings' The Times.
