Community Quote

... There are some references to events in Diana’s past and about her prior involvement with Stratton, which seem to relate back to earlier books in the series, but this did not get in the way of my enjoyment of ‘A Capital Crime.’ Laura Wilson is quite good at bringing the reader up to date ...

From Rillington Place to Paradise Street

AdvantagesGripping, well researched

DisadvantagesSlightly unsatisfying ending

"In 1950 a man called John Davies confesses to the murder of his wife and baby daughter, but is this case as cut-and-dry as it first appears to the investigating officers?

The Rillington Murders Retold

AdvantagesClever use of a true story; captures the period well

DisadvantagesAn unnecessary sub plot

"...Ted Stratton sets off with a colleague to look for the bodies of a young mother and her baby daughter. Hours earlier in Wales, John Evans, the woman’s husband and the baby’s father, had walked into a police station in Wales and confessed to the killings. It looks like a straightforward case for Stratton but by the time Evans has been brought back to London he has changed his story, blaming Norman Backhouse, another man living in the same building. ..."

similar by Author Surname (First Letter) (W)
Cover art is exceptional, blurb gives the right amount of detail, interesting twists in the plot
sometimes a bit slow, can be a bit obvious (although in other places it isn't) (*)
Good pace, interesting characters
The parts outside the UK are a bit less believable at times. (*)
Great characters, intriguing story, clever plot, hard to put down.
None. (*)
Bawdy, vulgar humour matches a frenetic pace and multiple crimes to solve
Not as long or as witty as later offerings (*)
