Lennox Kemp, struck-off Solicitor and reluctant investigator, thought the search for a suburban housewife a mundane affair, but when her murdered body is found in bizarre circumstances sinister undercurrents draw him back into the legal field where things are not always as they seem.
Then there is the grieving widower with his obsessional visits to the local mental hospital, an inward-looking world of unanswered questions.
By tenacious gathering of threads from past and present Kemp follows the trail to its startling climax, where the final horror extends even his understanding of the human mind in extremity.
This is a first novel by a writer addicted to detective fiction since childhood, and introduces Lennox Kemp as a modest amalgam of past heroes in the genre.
