Overview

Mr. and Mrs. Marble live in a rather seedy house at 53 Malcolm Road in London, certainly not the best part of town, but it's all they can afford considering that neither Mr. or Mrs. Marble can live within their means. They are always in debt with no way out, until a nephew arrives one rainy and windy night with a wallet full of money, alone and with no living relatives, and a solution is seized – a most murderous scheme.
Although C.S. Forester is best known for his novels about naval warfare and seafaring life, he began his career as a crime writer. Payment Deferred was a highly popular and ground breaking novel when it was first published and was also made into a movie starring Charles Laughton in his first sensational success.
Well-paced and compact, Payment Deferred a macabre look at life after murder. You'll like the excellent final twist.

    A memorable psychological drama.
    I ordered and read this on my Kindle, immediately after finishing The Pursued by the same author. If anything I enjoyed it even more.
    Poor Mr Marble, he's trapped in a stultifying job and marriage (as he sees it) and drowning in debt. His taste for whiskey doesn't help. Temptation arrives in the form of a wealthy relative, temptation he seizes without a thought for the consequences. Unfortunately for Mr Marble, this novel is a tale of consequences. Rather than the freedom he sought, has Mr Marble’s act of spontaneity condemned him to spend the rest of his days trapped in a vice of lies and deceit, from which no amount of wealth can release him?
    Forrester’s appeal to me lies in his ability to take us seamlessly from the internal tortures of one character to another. In this way, he rackets up the tension bit by bit. We may not like the characters, but privy as we are to their innermost thoughts, we understand them and empathise.
    I won't spoil the ending, but it takes an unexpected form.
    A dark domestic tale, a murder mystery and psychological thriller rolled into one.
    Nina Jon is the author of the Jane Hetherington Adventures in Detection crime and mystery series
