The Woodcutter, by Reginald Hill, B-plus, Narrated by Jonathan Keeble, produced by Whole Story Audio, downloaded from audible.com.

Wilfred Hadda, commonly known as Wolfe, was the son of an estate manager. He fell in love with the landowner’s daughter, Imogene. She said that for her to consider him for marriage, he would have to learn manners, learn how to act rich, and become rich. Four years later, Wolf returned having fulfilled all of these goals and married Imogene. Wolf Hadda's life was a fairytale - successful businessman and adored husband. But a knock on the door one morning ends it all. Wolf is accused of having child porn and being a pediphile. Universally reviled, thrown into prison, Wolf retreats into silence. Seven years later Wolf begins to talk to the prison psychiatrist and receives parole to return home. But there's a mysterious period in Wolf's past when he was known as the Woodcutter. Now the Woodcutter is back, looking for truth and revenge. How will he seek revenge? Is he getting ready to kill his enemies, especially his friends who betrayed him? What mysteries were in his life before he was falsely accused and sent to prison? The psychiatrist, who has more than an academic interest in him, wants to know the truth so that she can stop fearing that she vouched for someone’s rehabilitation and got him released when he was guilty. Quite a good book with several twists and turns.
