And I was completely wrong, believed (in the first part of the book) that it is a classic murder story and that the main character will kill his wife. Liked the ending very much.

Book by Symons, Julian
  • a mystery written by an excellent writer who presents interesting characters and a fine plot.

  • Largely forgotten now this book was one of the first winners of the crime writers association award and it is still just as good today. It is very much a psycological drama and is written in two halves - essentially before and after the crime. Difficult to talk about without giving away too much of the story, the author lets us into the mind of the accused, who is not sure himself whether he is guilty of anything. The character development is excellent and the plotting is top quality.

  • A real page-turner that will draw you in and lead you to what I felt was a disappointing conclusion.
