Description


In the writhing, violent shadows, it seems as if the truth about the murder may have gone up in smoke...

The murder, a brutal stabbing, definitely took place on Guy Fawkes Night. It was definitely by the bonfire on the village green. There were definitely a number of witnesses to a row between a group of Teddy Boys. And yet, was it definitely clear to anybody exactly what they had seen? In the writhing, violent shadows, it seems as if the truth may have gone up in smoke.

Based on a real case and exhibiting characteristically thorough research and skillful plotting, Julian Symons' phenomenal 1960 novel is a searing drama of wrongful accusation, gripping policework and a sharp portrait of small-town tensions. This edition also includes the short story "The Tigers of Subtopia" and an Introduction by award-winning author Martin Edwards.
