This riff on the classic ”man walks into a bar” tale involves the disappearance of a wife and child and the husband’s subsequent descent into madness — or does it?
In a former life… This is Richard Jury’s 20th outing — only this time, the Scotland Yard superintendent, recently disciplined, is working on his own.
Bottom Line A top-notch Grimes, replete with an especially suave villain and a most peculiar twist.
