Who exactly killed the best man?
3 November 2018 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Charlie Hatton was liked by some, hated by others, but who had a motive strong enough to kill him?

It's been somewhat of a slow burner, but the conclusion is well worth the wait. It's very well written, and very much a whodunnit, with plenty of suspects. It's very clever, great how the two strands come together.

Wexford is a very different character here, tetchy and unforgiving, being at home with his daughter gives him a different outlook.

Very good indeed. 8/10
