"...it was hate that kept the Town Moor going. There's a lot of talk these days about the disappearance of the community spirit. The truth is that nowadays people don't get to know each other well enough to work up the right kind of ill-feeling..."

Detective Superintendent Kenworthy must dig into the past to solve the murder of a man charged with killing his wife, only to discover that the dead man’s memoirs hide the origin of a yet unsuspected crime.

A “full-fleshed, first-class mystery of place and character” Kirkus
