For I prefer beauty always a little soured. When it comes to me as a spoonful of syrup, I spit it out. Gilbert Hand hasn't been the same since his wife died. He's moved to a dull but respectable hotel where silence seems to brood in the hall and stairway. In a secret drawer he discovers a long, thick hank of human hair, and his world narrows down to two people-himself and the murderer.

About the Author:

Charlotte Jay was born in 1919 in Adelaide, where she writes and operates an oriental art business. She has travelled widely and her crime fiction reflects her fascination with the private nightmares of lonely individuals. She once took a room in a fading hotel in London. At a nearby hairdresser's a thick knot of human hair was on display. The hotel and the hair combined in her imagination to inspire "A Hank of Hair" first published in 1964 in London and New York.
