  • As compelling a read as any fiction thriller

  • Written like a whodunit and wearing its vast research into Victorian Dublin ever so lightly, Thomas Morris's wholly factual murder mystery is easily one of the most entertaining page-turners I've read this year. It's a compelling, evocative, thrilling must-read, and proof, if further proof is ever required, that fact is often so much stranger - not to mention more entertaining - than fiction

    Sunday Independent
  • Illuminates a fascinating Victorian culture and society. And, most importantly for the silent man at the centre of this story, Morris's painstaking investigation of this perplexing crime and its far-reaching consequences ensures that George Little is no longer forgotten.

    Irish Independent
  • The Dublin Railway Murder is a true-crime masterclass: meticulous, vivid and as compelling as any thriller...beautifully reconstructs mid-19th century Dublin, while never easing up on the pace. Brilliantly done throughout.

    Philip Gray, author of TWO STORM WOOD
  • If, like me, you love everything Kate Summerscale writes, you'll lap up this compelling murder mystery...Morris draws us beautifully into his expert reconstruction of this baffling case.
