This is not really the murder story that the blurb might have you believe. It is a story of celebrity, friendship and obsessive love. Brandreth's characters are all drawn with warmth and sympathy but there is a satisfying acerbity to his observations. ( )

Epigraph
'See how love and murder will out'
-- George Colman, The Clandestine Marriage
Dedication
First words
Richard Faber was born early on the morning of Wednesday 5 October 1949, at the very moment, it turned out, when Donald Hume, small-time racketeer and double murderer, was tipping the segmented body of his first victim out of a light aircraft onto the Essex marshes.
