BLIND SPOT by Joseph Harrington


Email this review


Kerrigan (introduced first in The Last Known Address-- 1965) is asked to reactivate the case in which Laurie Callender gets twenty years for the murder of her fiance--primarily on the evidence that she had stayed with the corpse for an hour before going out to dinner. Kerrigan suspects an optical blind spot, later given the psychiatric term ""denial"" when it is revealed that the dead man had held lively assignations with a stripper in her apartment. A look at the earlier interrogations, depositions and trial transcript is followed by Kerrigan's plain plainclothes inquiry, all consistently interesting.
