The Best Man to Die

The fourth Wexford novel published by John Long in


A man and his daughter lie dead after a car accident. Strangely, no other car was involved, and the cause of the accident remains unknown. Wexford’s only option is to wait and hope that the one surviving victim—the mother, Mrs Fanshawe—regains consciousness.

But when she finally awakens six weeks later, Wexford’s attention has already been distracted by a new violent case. Walking by the canal that same morning, Wexford discovered the bloody body of Charlie Hatton.

The two cases seem unrelated, but just as Wexford begins to wonder whether there could be a connection, the unexpected occurs when the Fanshawe daughter, believed to be killed in the accident, appears at her mother’s bedside very much alive.
