I’d previously read the author’s The Suspicions of Mr Whicher and Mrs Robinson’s Disgrace. I see that writing about The Suspicions of Mr Whicher I said, ‘There’s obviously a huge amount of research in this book but it’s never obtrusive.’ Unfortunately I didn’t feel the same about The Wicked Boy. The book starts very slowly indeed, with fact piled upon fact and me thinking, ‘Come on, get to the murder!’ When we do so, a strange and horrific tale unfolds.
