This 1950 novel raises intriguing issues of character and identity, enjoyably wrapped up in a story of murder in the village of Chipping Cleghorn.
We are in a world where no one can be sure if people really are who they say they are. Villages and small towns in post-war England no longer have the old settled populations in which everyone’s background is well known.
Who is the man with the revolver who places the murder advert and shoots the revolver? Are the young cousins living at Little Paddocks using assumed names?
