A guilty verdict against lawyer John Prescott is inevitable, in this 1968 whodunit from D.M. Devine. Charged with two murders, six years apart, Prescott has no defense to speak of. The history presented by the prosecuting counsel includes fateful meetings with Norah Browne and Harriet Reece, the women in Prescott's life, and the rupturing of friendships and relationships in a small town shattered by violent death. Prescott seems powerless, apathetic even, when confronted by the overwhelming evidence-and yet he knows he is innocent. Someone else, one of the witnesses, must have been the killer. But which one? A hugely underrated and unjustly neglected writer, Devine wrote 13 crime fiction novels in all; Agatha Christie herself was a fan of his work throughout his career. The book is presented here in a handsome Crime Classics edition with a dramatic retro-styled cover.
