Whose name will not mean a lot to most of you, but he was an outstanding journalist and novelist. Somebody's Husband, Somebody's Son, about the Yorkshire Ripper, is among the very best pieces of crime reporting I've ever read, and Alma Cogan is a marvellous novel, but I think his book about Fred and Rose West, Happy Like Murderers, is unique, both in the way it sets about tackling an impossible subject and in the calm clarity of its writing. A giant has passed, long before his time.
