Oh no! He was great friends with the Elmers of booksite fame, and a truly wonderful writer. It was he who hooked me on historic crime. I know he'd been in bad health for some years, and lived to a ripe old age, but it's still a loss.


Very sad. His book on Julia Wallace was fascinating, the perfect balance of evidence for and against the prisoner shows why it had such a grip on the crime writers of the period. As Raymond Chandler said, "The Wallace case is unbeatable; it will always be unbeatable." The imagination is still haunted by the fatal address, Menlove Gardens East, like Hilldrop Crescent, or Birdhurst Rise, the geography of domestic murder.
