    Story
    (45)

    It is midnight on 30th June 1860 and all is quiet in the Kent family house in Road, Wiltshire. The next morning they wake to find that their youngest son has been the victim of an unimaginably gruesome murder. Even worse, the guilty party is surely one of their number - the house was bolted from the inside. As Jack Whicher, the most celebrated detective of his day, arrives to track down the killer, the murder provokes national hysteria. This true story is the original Victorian whodunit.

  • Go Down Together: The True, Untold Story of Bonnie and Clyde

    Story
    (114)

    With dramatic flair, Jeff Guinn delivers the definitive portrait of Bonnie and Clyde. These media-savvy outlaws appealed to America's Depression-era hunger for swashbuckling characters. Glowing radio and newspaper reports transformed these "public enemies" into celebrities - much like the cinema gangsters of the time.

    Story
    What disappointed you about Go Down Together?

    Very slow book. The story is just not very interesting.


    What could Jeff Guinn have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Faster pace. Fewer details on extended families.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    monotone. Hard to listen to without falling asleep


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No, I wish it did. I am having much difficulty finishing the book.
