Iles is able to glean from the reader sympathy for his main character, in spite of the circumstances. The novel contains one of the most unusual, totally gripping finales ever written.
Superbly dramatised in the late '70's, this is a masterpiece of crime writing.
I think I'm right in saying this was the first thriller where the one who Dunnit was revealed right at the beginning of the book. In fact in the first sentence! It is wonderfully well written with beautifully drawn village characters all of whom ring true. I have read it many times over the years and it never fails to grip me.
