This extraordinary true tale of isolation, deception and brutal violence, stretches from the quiet streets of north London to the Palace of Westminster and beyond. Thomas Harding spent two years investigating the murder of an eccentric recluse in Hampstead and the subsequent conviction of a Chinese dissident. With access to key witnesses, investigative officers, forensic experts and, most importantly, Wang Yam himself, still protesting his innocence in jail, the author has produced this explosive work of nonfiction.
Thomas Harding is an author and journalist who has written for the Financial Times, the Sunday Times and the Guardian. He wrote Hanns and Rudolf, a Sunday Times bestseller, and The House by the Lake, which was nominated for the Costa Biography Award.
Sue Cook is one of the UK’s most experienced broadcasters, often appearing on BBC radio and television. She is now a successful novelist and is currently adapting her first novel for a film.
