it was amazing

My old flatmate never lets me down. This one is non-fiction - an update of the Rachel Nickell case that he wrote about before, with Colin Stagg. This one is even better than the first because it's more concise. It follows a precise chronological order, cutting back and forth between Stagg, Robert Napper (the real murderer) and the murder/investigation itself. The pacing is good and the revelations even more shocking with the additional information that was not available to the press or public at the time (but WAS known to the police).

There have been several self-serving books by people involved in this case, but anyone wanting to know what really happen should read this book.
