Fall of Man in Wilmslow: The Life and Death of Alan Turing - A Novel

by David Lagercrantz
£8.99   paperback  Quercus Publishing (MacLehose Press) (2016)

Fall of Man in Wilmslow: The Life and Death of Alan Turing - A Novel by David Lagercrantz A powerful tale of honour, prejudice and the twentieth century's most maltreated hero, by the acclaimed author of The Girl in the Spider's Web.

"Lagercrantz neatly intertwines the facts of Turing's life with the fiction of Corell's quest for knowledge to create an unsettling story of state secrets and sexual hypocrisy."
(Nick Rennison, Sunday Times)
"Perhaps the most signal achievement here is the clever melding of two narrative forms: a sympathetic biography of a real historical figure treated appallingly by the establishment, and a police procedural in which a dogged copper tries to crack a mystery in the teeth of bloody-minded intransigence."
(Barry Forshaw, Independent)
"Swedish crime fiction moves into Britain's heartland in this superbly written espionage and murder novel... Lagercrantz has the lingo, the mood and the place down pat."
(Margaret Cannon, Globe and Mail (Toronto))
