The last penguin book I bought was the trial of Roger Casement it was very good and I enjoyed it immensely. in fact I wrote a letter to the government to ask why his body hadn't been sent home, I thought it was still in the grounds of Pentonville prison. I found out eventually that it had been sent home. Anyway every time I visit a book shop now I make sure I go through all the Penguin books looking for more trials. It made a great impact on me.
