The novel centers on the central character George Bennett, newly appointed inspector and the beginning of his most difficult and harrowing case - a suspected murder with no body, an investigation with more dead ends and closed faces than he'd have found in the anonymity of the inner city, and an outcome that reverberates through the years. I highly recommend this novel for its wonderful depiction of police work in the 1960's, its concise and beautiful language, its elaborate plotting, effective use of setting, and brilliant character development. One of the years best!
