It is a formidable, indeed a damning indictment and Wilkes presents the result of his detective work with journalistic panache.
Roger Wilkes's seminal book lays out the facts . . . one of the great unsolved murders of the century.
I call it the impossible murder because Wallace couldn't have done it. And neither could anyone else.
For once the blurb lives up to expectation. This is a real life whodunnit.
If you're given to nightmares, read no further. Liverpool's notorious Wallace case is straight out of Poe or Kafka.
