"November 1952 the body of ninteen-year-old Patricia Curran was carried into the surgery belonging to the family doctor. At first Dr. Kenneth Wilson thought that she had been the victim of an accidental shooting. In fact a subsequent post-mortem revealed that she had been stabbed thirty-seven times."."The Curran family were tainted by scandal from the beginning - Judge Lance Curran, ambitious and driven, weighed down by gambling debt; the ascetic Desmond, lost in religious zealotry - and there were rumours of savage disagreements between Patricia and her mother. But most of the doubt concerned Patricia herself. Was she a spirited and confident proto-feminist, or an upper-class demi-mondaine, demanding and promiscuous? In a storm of publicity, rumour and counter-rumour, Scotland Yard dispatch Chief Inspector John Capstick uncovers a complex web of deceit. Determined to secure a conviction, Capstick's focus falls on a peripheral figure, a young army conscript, Iain Hay Gordon, who finds himself fighting for his life in the shadow of the gallows."--BOOK JACKET.
