Summary

He's just seven years old. He's your son. You wave goodbye to him one morning as he disappears into the swirling fog. And then he is gone. Forever.
This gripping historical crime fiction novel, based on fact, is set in Bradford, England, 1888. It explores the horrific murder of Johnny Gill; a murder and mutilation so gruesome, it stuns a nation. Even hardened detectives are affected by its savagery, swiftly comparing it to the work of Jack the Ripper.
Who Killed Little Johnny Gill? is Kathryn McMaster's debut novel. It is a noir pause-resister that immediately immerses you in a maelstrom of emotions, keeping you in suspense as Chief Detective Constable Withers and his dedicated team of British detectives try and gather sufficient evidence to bring a conviction against their suspect.
In 1888, police procedures and knowledge of Forensic Science are rudimentary and juries are exposed to persuasive newspaper reports and public opinion. Will justice prevail, or will the guilty walk free?
This is one crime fiction novel you won't be able to put down until the last word!

Dreadful narration

Worst narration I've listened to, parts of it not even edited! Talks really fast in some chapters very hard to listen to.

Seriously?

Evidently not edited for publication. The narrator turns his mic off and on, clearing his throat and sniffing, starting over and repeating himself. The writing was not impressive to begin with, and the narrator finished it for me. The entire story could have been summarized in two paragraphs on Wikipedia.

1888 Murder of Eight Year Old Boy in England

A true story of the tragic murder of young Johnny Gill in Bradford, England . . . a killing so gruesome that some thought it to be the work of Jack the Ripper . . . the tale is well told, with explicit detail, sad and sick as it was . . . and all through the book, I had a niggling feeling . . . which in the end is the same conclusion that the author came to in the afterward . . . don't miss that . . . to me that's one of the best parts . . .
