David Oluwale's story has a raw power, even five decades on, and Kester Aspden makes it compelling and relevant for the reader of today
Kester Aspden's brave book finally puts the life and death of David Oluwale where it always should have been: centre-stage in the criminal, political and social history of postwar England -- David Peace
This is a shocking and engrossing story... A true story with all the material of a novel, the book is a kind of In Cold Blood set in Leeds -- Jonathan Sale * Financial Times *
Aspden's painstaking research, empathetic approach and ability to weave together a vivid wider social critique show Oluwale was done a terrible disservice... This tenderly compiled book will still make you weep * Metro *
Aspden writes compassionately of his character, weaving information into a gripping narrative and attempting, with a novelist's skill, to give a heartbeat to the dry statistics on his life * Independent *
