THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT - Ed McBain
This one of the "Matthew Hope" series written by McBain with Hope being a Florida lawyer.
Hope is hired to prove that Ralph Parrish didn't murder his brother. He is also dealing with surveillance on his business partners wife who appears to be having an affair.
This book is muddled, way to coincidental even for a crime novel and its tedious, I only finished it as I was on the ferry and it was all I had to hand. Everybody in the book is unlikable including star of the show.
If you're going to read McBain read his procedural's rather than this series.
