Thrilling MacDonald mystery told,from different points of view. Well done and gripping, but seems to resolve itself quickly once the police become involved. That isn’t bad, but would have liked more from the detective character than just a final chapter. Also the plot line involving a former cop, now a parole officer, who first appears to be the main villain of the piece, gets dealt with also quickly, while the college teacher he first threatens also largely fades out of the story.
