Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
A defense solicitor near Liverpool, Harry Devlin (All the Lonely People) is a loner, but he's curious and unable to leave puzzles alone. After wealthy, obnoxious client Jack Stirrup asks him to look for his missing wife, Harry gets much more anxious when Stirrup's stepdaughter, Claire, disappears as well. At the same time, Harry destroys his chance at romance with Valerie Kaiwar, a black attorney whom he wrongly accuses of having an affair. Edwards's experience as a crime writer shows in his colorfully descriptive phrasing, finely drawn characters, and a plot with several twists. Recommended for most collections. Edwards lives in England. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

In the Liverpool area, more because of Detective Bolis¿ interest in him as a prime suspect, Jack Stirrup of Stirrup Wines asks his solicitor Harry Devlin to learn what happened to his wife Alison, who vanished. Harry begins making inquiries as he tries to trace Alison¿s last known steps though he wonders if his client simply disposed of an unwanted spouse. As he begins making progress, the investigation takes a bizarre spin when Claire, Jack¿s daughter from his first wife, also turns up missing. --- At the same time, Harry looks into the Stirrup family The Beast stalks Liverpool raping women. While Harry finds himself attracted to advocate Valerie Kaiwar whom he meets at the Law Courts, he ponders if there is a link between the missing Stirrup females and the Beast as he starting to believe the rapist is somehow involved. --- This is an interesting English investigative tale that stars a likable hero struggling with a case in which his client seems to be hiding things, the cops wants him to stay out, the prime culprit appears to be a rapist, and worst of all he is in love. All of this and more blends nicely together into a delightful whodunit that will please those readers who enjoy the star to be of a skeptical suspicious mind trusting no one including his heart. --- Harriet Klausner
