THE SNIPER by Hugh Pentecost


Email this review


Headmaster Pelham, like the Rector of Justin, was a chameleon figure and all things to all people- particularly the members of his family. His murder ten years ago remained unsolved and now when John Jericho, a painter, is commissioned to do a posthumous portrait of him, it revives not only speculation about Pelham's life and death but renews violence. The old man's extramarital status and illegitimate legacy to one of his children key the case which is handled with the professional ease which comes with long practice.
