Comments: Pretense


In other words, the first instinct of the police in this book is not to suspect the last man whom the deceased might have met of committing the murder, but rather to show him all the evidence and enlist him, and his peculiar specialty, to help solve the crime

you clearly haven't gotten too far into the book yet, I take it :) I trust its not a major spoiler to reveal that he IS a suspect, and in fact the police chief is sufficently media-minded that he has pioneered a technique of letting the prime suspect hang themselves.

keep reading! eager to discuss the book with you ...
