Book reviews - The Colour Of Murder

The Colour Of Murder


Author: Julian Symons

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY MARTIN EDWARDS


'One of our most ingenious and stylish home-grown crime novelists' – Spectator
'A book to delight every puzzle-suspense enthusiast' – New York Times


John Wilkins meets a beautiful, irresistible girl, and his world is turned upside down. Looking at his wife, and thinking of the girl, everything turns red before his eyes – the colour of murder.


But did he really commit the heinous crime he was accused of? Told innovatively in two parts: the psychiatric assessment of Wilkins and the trial for suspected murder on the Brighton seafront, Symons' award-winning mystery tantalizes the reader with glimpses of the elusive truth and makes a daring exploration of the nature of justice itself.
