KIRKUS REVIEW

An oblique fascination for a study in murder in which Nigel Cassel, who has just left his wife and who stumbles over the body of a woman in a London fog, confides his personal problem to a doctor, Hughes, met in a pub. Impressed and obsessed by the personality of Hughes, Cassel follows him to his home in Wales, and through associative, intuitive findings establishes the certainty-if not the evidence- that he is a killer, and through this knowledge resolves his own conflict. A first novel which is subtle and distinctive.
