by ROY LEWIS
This short novel introduces Inspector John Crow. To date, there have been seven subsequent titles in the series.
This is an old fashioned mystery. There are no cell phones, IMs or computers, just the solving of the case.
Peter Marlin is in trouble. He is married to Jeannette who recently returned after an unexplained absence from home. During the time that she was away, Peter found a new relationship. Unfortunately for him, his wife is murdered and he looks pretty guilty.
Readers will enjoy trying to solve this case that is set in the 1960s. Can they figure everything out before the ethical Inspector Crow?
Many thanks to NetGalley and Joffe Books for this title. All opinions are my own.
