Summary

Leo Selver, a middle-aged antiques dealer, is stunned when the beautiful and desirable Judy Latimer shows an interest in him. Soon they are lying in each other's arms, unaware that this embrace will be their last. Popular opinion suggests that Leo murdered the girl, a theory Leo's wife - well aware of her husband's infidelities - refuses to accept.

Ed Buchanan, a former policeman who has known the Selvers since childhood, agrees to clear Leo's name. Selver and his fellow antiques dealers had uncovered a secret, and it is up to Ed to find the person willing to kill in order to protect it.

Feeling short changed

There was a lot of build up to the murders, an interesting and exciting investigation, some fights and a romance, but no real conclusion as to who was really behind it all.

Excellent

I enjoyed it immensely. It was a good novel well preformed. I recommend it to those who like older British mysteries.

A really good story for its type...

Its type being 'A Golden Age Mystery', but with an early 1970's vibe. Which is, of course, when the story takes place. A bit more sexually and violently explicit than many Golden Agers written in the 40's - 60's, although not by present day standards. The words "perverse" and "Kubrik-esque" come to mind, just less explicit and disturbing. I say that as a Stanley Kubrik fan.
