Albert Black was the second to last person to be executed in New Zealand. He was just 20 years old. He was hanged as a murderer, though in researching her latest novel, Fiona is convinced there was a strong case for manslaughter on the grounds of self-defence. There are lots of fascinating elements in this compelling novel: teenage love, bodgies and teddy boys, child immigrants, a trial, prison and execution.

As ever, Fiona has written a novel that is believable, revealing, and insightful about our country, about us.
