This is a McCabe and Savage mystery. I think it is the first one I have read but it won’t be the last. It is a story of revenge or retribution depending on your point of view. A suicide and some murders get Detectives McCabe and Savage involved.
The story is a good mystery but it also makes one pause and consider that some of the assumptions made in college may have been grossly incorrect and possibly caused long term damage. The college mind is so often dead certain of it’s facts are mores and retrospect makes one realize how often the college mind was immersed in self-delusion.
The story is horrific and yet anyone who went to college was aware of one like it. The consequences of this story were dramatic and perhaps justified.
Hayman sets up an intricate plot while leaving breadcrumbs for the sleuthy reader to pursue. (sleuthy being self coined)
I enjoyed the story and recommend it.
This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
