Jill Dawson
The Hidden Story of Lord Lucan

Novelist Jill Dawson is often drawn to real people – most notably with the murderous lovers Fred and Edie, and with Patricia Highsmith, who became the star of Dawson’s novel The Crime Writer. In The Language of Birds, she looks to the blood-curdling events that took place in the home of Lord Lucan – but from the point of view of the household’s nanny.
