    Dear Emma

    I met you at the Imperial War Museum last weekend and you kindly signed your book. Having seen Downfall several times, and read The Lost Life of Eva Brown and Until the Final Hour I have to say you have captured the atmosphere completely….At the turn of every page I did not know what to expect, I felt I was really there being a witness as the story unfolded.,an underlying suspense and brilliantly written. I could not put it down and read the book in one sitting.

    Thank You

    Best wishes

    Richard Price
