I was excited to read this after the excellent introduction by Robert Peston, but it just never got going. It's impressive that the author wrote this while dying, but that doesn't stop it being dull. You find out quite early who did it, and there's no suspense leading up to his apprehension. None of the characters are very likeable, you never really get inside any of them, and the way they speak is not very convincing. There's no real evocation of the period other than the odd namecheck of a few contemporary products. Overall - dull!
