    Yes it is. It’s a Joseph Barnett suspect book and he researched and wrote about the wrong Joseph Barnett.

        It comes to something when even Peter Sutcliffe calls you a "wazzock".

              As it has been withdrawn from sale by the publisher, it could be rare and collectable. You should maybe spare it from the flames for a while.

                There's one (used) copy on Amazon priced at £180.

                    I actually meant Harrison's latest, which his publisher has withdrawn from sale and therefore may have a rarity value in the future. Loretta has a copy or two of Harrison's Ripper book for a few pounds. Why the seller on Amazon wants £180 is beyond me. Ot Loretta is underpinning her copy.

                      “Conspiracy theorists, she knew, were paranoid by definition, and usually with good reason - they were indeed being watched, largely because they were standing on an upturned bucket, haranguing the sheeple with their wingnut delusions.” Mick Herron.

                        Perhaps this copy is the one with the right Joe Barnett in it

                          Thanks JM.

                          Indeed, I’ve never bothered to read it.

                          But Bruce Paley’s book was one of my earliest JtR purchases.
