Reviews

  • "'a riveting portrait of the notorious Clermont set ... reads like a galloping Mayfair noir thriller'"

    Sunday Times
  • "'Pearson reveals the charisma, char and wit of these dastardly but debonair millionaires and shows how their code of extreme loyalty led to one of the great crimes of the 20th century remaining unsolved.'"

    Sunday Express
  • "Whether one buys this solution or not, the book has a repulsive fascination about it. Written in crisp, ironic style without moralising, it leaves you feeling as if you have been studying a fatal disease - gambling - which drives men to absurd lengths, grotesque behaviour and, usually, bad ends"

    Daily Mail
  • "Riveting book ... Pearson cleverly entices the reader into a whodunnit"
