Reviews

A vivid, cinematic and exciting debut - RED Magazine 'Book of the Month'Bloom has uncovered an episode in London's history that deserves to be better known, and her research has thrown up some appalling events . . . the subject matter alone makes for a thought-provoking read - INDEPENDENTWell-researched, convincingly evocative of an exciting era and covers events of which most people will have little awareness. It's also a timely warning against the dangers of the insidious rhetoric against people of a different race or nationality, which is rearing its ugly head again - DAILY MAILA stirring story of the darker side of the 60s - SUNDAY MIRROR
