What the critics say:

"[Malcolm Brown] has a fine attention to detail and a storyteller's ability with a good yarn. ... This [Cold-Blooded Murder] is a fine book. The research is meticulous, each news event is placed in a larger context and the writing is gripping - even when you already know the outcome." Bruce Elder, nonfiction reviewer, Spectrum, 2006

"Brown's expertise is to tell a story with just the right level of drama to induce in the reader a sense of moral outrage without ever showing his own prejudices." Bruce Elder, nonfiction reviewer, Spectrum, 25 July 2009
