      Gives drying paint a bad rapThis book sucks. It should be renamed A Long Day's Journey Into Nothingness. It is the slowest piece of erudite pulp I have had the misfortune to read, and I didn't come close to finishing it. Don't waste your time. It's a novel filled with hollow characters involved in the pursuit of nothing: a book about nothing. It may have worked for Jerry Seinfeld but not here.

    5. Bruce says:

      An odd book. Ostensibly a thriller, one is never quite sure where it's heading, but that's one of its virtues, and it ends up being a wonderful and ingenious story. Some may think it dated, but I love this kind of old-fashioned story-telling.

      Finely crafted tale of duplicity and murder. Well read (Librivox) by Richard Kilmer. Recommended.

      Ever wonder what it would be like if good met evil and then was invited over for dinner and drinks? If evil were interested in the politics and ethics that good was endeavoring to employ? how about if good fell in love with evil’s daughter after her husband who was also evil commits suicide?Welcome to 1922 and E.P. Oppenheim’s ‘The Evil Shepherd.Francis Ledsam is one of London’s brightest and most successful defense lawyers.After successfully defending and proving the innocence of his la [...]

      The 20's Roar, with Crime and Romance, Sir Francis Ledsam is a brilliant barrister, whose clientele is mainly of the criminal class.

Shortly after the conclusion of the trial, Hilditch's wife, the beautiful Margaret, tells Ledsam that Hilditch, in fact, is an evil killer. Hilditch invites the lawyer home to dinner where he proceeds to demonstrate how he accomplished the murder. Later that evening, Hilditch i [...]

      Francis Ledsam, a self-satisfied successful defense barrister who rarely, if ever, delves into the innocence of his clients has just come off another winen something happens which gives him paused the very intriguing and riveting story unfolds with high intensity. I couldn't put this one down.

    10. Marti says:

      This was a very interesting book in that it was published many years ago. There is a young couple. She has been unhappily married, but no more. Her father has the reputation of being corrupt and evil, and yet he rescues horses, cats, and dogs. The ending might be different than what the reader would expect. One typo--fattier for father toward the end.

    11. Jack says:

      Tale of an evil man - but is he as evil as people believe. Looks at the difference between morality and the law.

    12. Kathy says:
