(1952)
(A book in the Thomas Littlejohn series)
A novel by

 
 
It was meant to be a fool-proof scheme. The victim was a recluse, cut off from the world after the death of his wife. Nobody would think it strange when they didn't see him. Nobody would make enquiries.
Yet even the most meticulous of criminals can be caught out, especially if they don't leave room for human error.
When a runaway bank clerk sets of a chain of investigation that grows to overwhelming proportions, Littlejohn is called in to handle the situation and the death of Finloe Oates is uncovered.
Murder, impersonation, disappearance, forgery, and embezzlement. Drawn into the bizarre world of the reclusive Finloe, Littlejohn and Cromwell find themselves with more than one mystery to unravel - but will they be able to find the elusive killer?
