Shake Hands Forever - 1975
The Chief Inspector can discover no motive, no reason and no suspect
for Mrs Hathall's daughter-in-law's murder - all he has are his own
intuitive suspicions. Probably Angela Hathall really had picked up a
stranger, and that stranger had killed her. But why the doubt?
Sleeping Life - 1978
A Sleeping Life unveils an elaborate web of lies and deception painstakingly
maintained by a troubled soul. A wallet found in Comfrey's handbag leads
Inspector Wexford to Mr. Grenville West, a writer whose plots revel
in the blood, thunder, and passion of dramas of old; whose current whereabouts
are unclear; and whose curious secretary--the plain Polly Flinders--provides
the Inspector with more questions than answers. And when a second Grenville
West comes to light, Wexford faces a dizzying array of possible scenarios--and
suspects--behind the Comfrey murder.
