    I've read approx. 20 percent of Paul's book and have enjoyed what I've read so far.

    Wondering whether anyone else has been reading it....and what your impression has been.

      One thing I really like is the way in which the suspects are presented in narrative form, whereas it could simply have been written as a pithy A-Z.

        Thanks Sam.

        I was trying to produce something accessible to general readers, inspired by Sugden's Complete History. For me, that remains the benchmark and a masterpiece of historical writing.

        I also liked the idea of grouping suspects, based loosely on the reasons why they were suspected. Okay, they don't all fit neatly in the assigned chapters, but it is possible to detect similarities and see how theories developed.
