Initial chapters of this book are real page turners and very much interesting. I felt the story going to have an end in the 9th/10th chapter itself out of seventeen chapters with the flow of initial chapters.

Yes, we could get most details of the crime scene in initial chapters and few intermediate chapters seems to be bit dragging. Last few chapters get back the speed and the ending was well done.

The crux of a crime thriller is to keep the readers guessing till the end and nobody except James Haidley Chase do this better

No one writes a thriller like James Hadley Chase do. A definite unputdownable!

the writing was fair enough and thrills were kept intact. The ending was a bit too depressing, though.
This is not a faithful reprint of the original novel but a bowdlerization. You should boycott this book.

“Now women are funny animals. You never know when you are with them - they don’t often know where they are with themselves . It’s no good trying to find out what makes them tick. It just can’t be done. They have more moods than an army of cats with lives, and all you can hope is to spot the mood you’re after when it turns up and step in quick. Hesitate you’re a dead duck, unless you’re one of those guys who like slow approach that might get you somewhere in a week or in a month or even a year.” 2 likes
