James Morton is a former barrister and author of several books and autobiographies including The Last Detective. He lives in London.Review:
[Lola Montez] now has another fitting monument in this full, judicious and endlessly entertaining biography.

Matthew Dennison, Times Literary Supplement. Lola's story is truly gobsmacking Glasgow Herald
