THE ACCESSORY by Mary Lockwood


Email this review


Nick Sheldon, a promising young medic, rather than jeopardize his career, permits a man to die in the park unattended (a coronary), then knifes in a subway the girl who had been his inadvertent witness. Later meeting and attracting her roommate, he offers his help in her determination to find the killer the police have long since given up on. But, with her growing conviction of his guilt, it is only as his wife that she can be safe -- and he can remain free. Taken down a little, this would be in the Patricia Highsmith class -- as it is, it's uxorious suspense.
