Hanged Man's House

(1974)
A novel by

 
 
Library Journal
Relationships among the inhabitants of a small English village, most of whom are on staff at the Martindale, a scientific research station, are revealed as very complex after the director, Charles Gair, is found hanged in his home by his assistant and his sister, who are also his neighbors. Romances, old and new, failed marriages and affairs, and the reappearance of missing persons all surface as detective superintendent Patrick Dunn investigates. The relaxed and natural narration by Clive Mantle fits the mood of the novel perfectly, and his skill at voicing the very different characters makes the listener feel a part of the investigation and of the neighborhood. Ferrars (The Doubly Dead), a Crime Writer's Association Silver Dagger winner, shows her skill at revealing the unexpected from a seemingly simple situation. Recommended for public libraries.--Melody A. Moxley, Rowan P.L., Salisbury, NC Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
