    • It took a little while for me to get into this, but once I was about 50 pages in, I was gripped. The author does a wonderful job of evoking time and place in post-war Britain in the countryside and creates rounded, flawed characters that you want to know what happens to. The story tells the tale of Solomon Straw/Jeremiah Bembo, a man who lives a double life as a respectable farmer and an executioner, responsible for effectively carrying out the hangings of Britain's criminals. At first, Jeremiah [...]


    • This is an excellent book: dark, hypnotic, riveting, it asks questions about how an ordinary man can bear to do a job which sets him apart from family, friends, and humanity itself: a job which he has to carry out in "secret" as much as is possible. The check list that precedes the story is chilling in its thoroughness, yet conveys a sense of how such a profession must depend on a detachment from sentimentality. This is put to the ultimate test when the hangman's two lives collide. Powerful stuf [...]


    • Mid 4. Binding expertly deals with complex moral issues in this story of Jeremiah Bembo,a seemingly inconsequential market gardener, who under the pseudonym of Solomon Straw performs his role as public executioner. Proud of his talent to quickly dispatch those sent under his auspices, through one case which intrudes on his domestic facade, he is forced to question his identity and to seek true justice.


    • Beautifully written, totally unique story about a part-time executioner who experiences a change of heart under terrible circumstances - part mystery, part thoughtful meditation on life and death and the arbitrary nature of both. This novel was almost impossible to find in the US, but I'm glad I tracked it down.


    • It was a slow starting book, but once it got going it took off! Everyone was connected in some way whether they knew it or not. I would have to say the only thing I didn't really like is there were no chapters, or good stopping points so it took longer for me to read since it meant I had to have a good length of time to sit and read it.


    • This book was a bit slow so it took me longer to read but that's ok because the story was fantastic. That ending? Oh my gosh reminds me of watching Hitchcock movies. Sometimes books in the bargain bins are amazing finds.


    • Another historically oriented novel from Tim Binding, this time loosely based on the "A6 murder" and the hanging of James Hanratty. He evokes the craft of the executioner with chilling clarity. Although there are a lot of shades of good and evil in the story, it is a very moral one.


    • Good book, the protagonist is quite likable even though he's somewhat detestable, which keeps you reading.Well written, will read TB again.
