"Intruiging" -- Christie Hickman Sunday Express "A story which is as compelling and violent as a thriller, but which also happens to be one of the most dazzling feats of reportage in recent years" Time Out "It is a measure of James Fox's remarkable achievement that in White Mischief he not only produces an impeccably researched and lucidly written "last word" on this notorious case but also brings these astonishing people and their perplexed lives so vividly and compellingly to life" -- William Boyd "A fascinating piece of investigative reporting that possesses all the resonance of a social history and the drama of a good mystery...[and] a narrative strategy that allows the reader the excitement of watching a tenacious reporter piece together the truth" New York Times "Leave P.D. James on the shelf, tuck Dick Francis away in the saddlebag, James Fox's investigation has everything you look for in a thriller" The Economist
