read Blood on the Page Blood on the Page review ↠ eBook or Kindle ePUB A groundbreaking examination of a terrifying murder and its aftermath by the bestselling author of Hanns and Rudolf and The House by the Lake In June 2006 police were called to number 9 Downshire Hill in Hampstead The owner of the house Allan Chappelow was an award winning photographer and biographer an expert on George Bernard Shaw and a notorious recluse who had not been seen for several weeks Someone had recently accessed his bank accounts and attempted to withdraw large amounts of money Inside the darkened house officers found piles of rubbish. What a disappointment this book is Harding is an excellent investigative journalist but the problem here is that the trial with which he s concerned was held in secret and under a gagging order which forbids anyone to even speculate why that was so As Harding himself says any partial alternative view is speculation A decade since the killing of Allan Chappelow little is certain Given that the usual reason for this kind of order is the protection of national security there must be far to the story than Harding can even speculate about since nothing in the current story has anything much to do with national politics though there are intimations that the accused was an informant to the security services Harding does make some guesses about Chappelow s personal life but they re unsurprising and don t really fit with the details of the murder Even that though is less full that I expected for example there is talk of burns which don t seem to fit with the scenario that Harding tentatively outlines but we re not told enough to even judge thatThat there was going on than came out in the public trial seems almost certain but through no fault of his own Harding cannot either investigate or write about it Very frustrating The Laughing Buddha Zen and the Comic Spirit recently accessed his bank accounts and attempted to withdraw large amounts of money Inside the darkened house officers found piles of The Shadows Part 1 Black Dagger Brotherhood #13 rubbish.

read Blood on the Page Blood on the Page review ↠ eBook or Kindle ePUB Trees growing through the floor and in what was once the living room the body of Chappelow battered to death partially burned and buried under four feet of paper The man eventually arrested on suspicion of his murder was a Chinese dissident named Wang Yam a man who claimed to be the grandson of one of Mao's closest aides and a key negotiator in the Tiananmen Suare protests His trial was the first in modern British history to be held 'in camera' closed carefully controlled secret Wang Yam was found guilty but has always protested his innocence Thoma. Before going into this book I did have some doubts about whether or not I would like this The result is that I mainly did like it apart from a little slowish pacing in the middle This is a very recent case here in the UK I was 7 when the murder happened 19 at recent court developments however the basis for Blood On The Page is about an author living in a posh London home alone is reported missing Despite lots of visits his body isn t discovered for a while When it is he was buried under 4 feet worth of paper with horrible injuries The investigations and secret trial made for interesting reading A very creepy read

read Blood on the Page Blood on the Page review ↠ eBook or Kindle ePUB S Harding has spent the past two years investigating the case interviewing key witnesses investigating officers forensic experts and the journalists who broke the story and has unearthed shocking and revelatory new material on the killing the victim and the supposed perpetrator It is a crime that has been described in the press and by the leading detective as 'the greatest whodunnit' of recent years an extraordinary tale of isolation deception and brutal violence stretching from the uiet streets of north London to the Palace of Westminster and beyo. This should have been a fascinating look at the trial of a Chinese man for the brutal murder of an 86 year old man in Hamsptead in 2006 but for some reason it just didn t uite grab me I liked the structure of the narrative following chronologically and featuring relevant in depth looks at the background of the two men Wang Yam and Allan Chapelow and I also liked the inclusion of the author s case notes in between the chapters Unfortunately I think that the book suffers from the fact that much of the information brought up during the trial cannot be included or even speculated about due to certain portions of the trial being conducted in secret As a result the book doesn t really introduce any new theories or evidence and is therefore only a re telling of the process followed I suspect that the author was frustrated by his inability to dig further and perhaps he should have waited until the removal of the gag order before publishing Overall this is a well researched book but it is a little bit dullI received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review
