The Lover, by Laura Wilson

Reviews of The Lover by Laura Wilson

Two reviews of Laura Wilson’s The Lover, by Bookloons, and the Seattle PI:

The Lover is an intriguing novel. First it uses a horrendous time during World War II to set the scene. And does it very well. As I read of the conditions and of the residents of London and their reaction to the war, I forgot this was supposed to be a mystery. It came as a shock that, indeed, it was a mystery. … The Lover is a truly captivating book that was so very hard to put down, if you will pardon the cliché. It’s well-written with a firm grip of the history of that time as well as a look into the mind and actions of a murderer. Don’t miss it.

The Lover is wonderfully written psychological thriller set in London in 1940 during the Blitz. We may have seen movies and read historical accounts of this World War II time frame before, but never in such day-to-day detail. … Historical crime author Laura Wilson captures the air of uncertainty of this time period perfectly. Inspired by the true-life “Blackout Ripper,” a serial killer of prostitutes in the tradition of Jack the Ripper, The Lover evokes the twin threats of the nightly bombing raids and a crazed killer on the loose in London.
