Frog in the Throat
Virginia Freer's trouble is that whenever something awful happens, it is far too easy to imagine that her husband, Felix, is behind it somehow. She doesn’t want to believe this, but he lies, you see. He lies the way other people brush hair off their foreheads, all the time and without even noticing they’re doing it.
Then there’s the fact (and it can’t be denied) that when awful things happen, Felix is often nearby. The latest awfulness is a local writer shot dead on the eve of her engagement party—and right on time, Felix has turned up, like a charming, well-dressed, bad penny.
“Fascinating and wholly absorbing...E.X. Ferrars is nowhere as well-known as she should be.” —Mystery*File
