I am delighted to tell you that The Battered Body Beneath the Flagstones and other Victorian Scandals has received a terrific review in Crime Review magazine. Here’s a little of what they said:
This is a great book for dipping in to as all the cases stand alone. The writing is easy to read and bubbles along, and the stories are brought to life by bursts of dialogue, which I presume are reconstructed from evidence presented in court. Where there is evidently little material available about a case, the account given is short, but a number of cases are given an extended treatment. The author does not impose her opinion on the material but presents an impartial account of the case drawn from factual, historical sources.

And you can order the book from all good bookshops and from the publisher, Little, Brown.
Victorian Scandals really is the book that keeps on giving! With that in mind, look out for a future blog post, written by a lady who found her grandfather in the pages of the book!! It will be coming later this summer!
Until next time,
