London and the call for justice
on 3 December 2016
A complex story that involves politics and an election and privilege.
The Old Boys' Club that seems to exist amongst certain rather wealthy young men appears to encourage and support an amount of youthful high jinks that can be rather more serious in nature than just fun and games. Sometimes they include what amount to serious crimes, but that are covered up by members of the club, as (almost) part of their rights and dues for their societal positions.
In this story a crime committed long ago, in university, comes back to haunt the Club in the most macabre way.
It is the job of the police to unravel the clues and to find out just what is being hidden, by whom, and who are the guilty parties.
I enjoyed this, my first Inspector Carlyle novel. I enjoyed the writing style and the storyline set against the complications of an election and party politics.
