    Laurent and Gabriel were murdered on my 32nd birthday. Laurent lived across the hall.
    We never had the chance to meet him, but we think his fiancée, Marie, called round one evening to borrow a corkscrew, which my girlfriend told her they could keep. At least with that one small gesture my girlfriend had the opportunity to have some positive impact on his life in London, for which I truly and bizarrely envy her.
    After the murders, my girlfriend's grief manifested itself through intense guilt, whereas anger was my overwhelming emotion. The fact that it happened on our doorstep intensified the injustice and made me ashamed to be British for my government's failings.
    Never so plainly had I witnessed two such undeniably good souls snatched from the world by two such wastes of human life. If it were a simple choice of who deserved to live on this earth more, to my mind there would be no contest. But the wrong pair survived and in thirty to forty years they will perhaps walk free.
    I decided to write my debut novel to vent some of my pent up anger through the eyes of a character who has nothing to lose, and to explore more profoundly the distinction between those who merit the gift of life, like Laurent and Gabriel, and those who clearly do not.
    More than two years down the line, I dedicate the completed novel to Laurent Bonomo and Gabriel Ferez, may they rest in peace.

    I did not know them but I know what an impact it made on me when I read of this case in the papers. I have myself been an exchange student in Amiens, France for a year and had a wonderful time and was treated with such respect and conviviality. The statements of the parents of these brilliant students break my heart to read, that this should happen to them in my country is nothing but shameful.

    Il restera de vous
    Ce que vous avez donné
    Au lieu de le garder
    Dans des coffres rouillés
    Il restera de vous
    De votre jardin secret
    Une fleur oubliée
    Qui ne s'est pas fanée.
    Ce que vous avez donné
    En d'autres fleurira
    Celui qui perd sa vie
    Un jour la trouvera

    (adapté d'un poème)

    Best wishes to the loved ones of Laurent and Gabriel. I am very sorry that the British Government and its flawed criminal justice system let you down so tragically.
