I would guess that the Lord Lucan mystery is one of the biggest mysteries of the 20th Century; and, forty years on, it is still very much a mystery. No-one has a clue what happened. Lord Lucan was a very dashing Earl who, if he'd been around today, would have been regularly featuring in all the glossy magazines.

I love this story and was very interested in reading this book however honestly the writing style was very distracting for me. I struggled finishing the book. I was on board a Greek liner crossing the Pacific Ocean when the murder of Sandra Rivett took place, and the ship's newspaper contained little of world interest, as it was mostly concerned with the lottery for guessing how many miles the ship was like to do today.
Therefore, it was a complete shock to see when I arrived in the UK the papers covered with news of The Lord Lucan affair. Of course it seemed that the peer was undoubtedly guilty of the murder and I consumed every aspect of the evidence as it emerged. Like many others I have had a continued interest in what really happened to Lord Lucan.
So, any new angle concerning what really occurred, and his whereabouts since his disappearance, is a glimmer of hope that this may bring a believable story of the truth. This account has some interesting ideas but fails to convince me that there is any authenticity in it.
If Jimmy Goldsmith and Aspers played the parts consigned to them, Lucky was a thankless recipient of their largesse in helping him to escape, even had his imaginings been genuine. However, it does provide a few new angles and makes interesting reading.
I honestly started to flag and lost interest having read the opening chapters of the 'Lord Lucan mystery. Unfortunately the book fails to engage the reader or deliver any narrative meat to such a promising plot. So my advice is simple.
