ACQUITTAL by John Wainwright


Email this review


After he's unexpectedly cleared of the murder of his ex-wife Lissa, short-tempered Harvey Russell tempts his luck trying to discover why he was framed. Though ""still a bricky at heart,"" Russell's a partner in a firm of building contractors which turns out to have been paying ""skim-offs"" to a local alderman who's also Lissa's latest lover. A thoroughly baffling, neat little job by the author of The Hard Hit and Landscape With Violence.
