FOR THE TWISTED AND TALENTED, MURDER IS A GAME
Scotland Yard Chief Superintendent John Coffin is properly skeptical of the evil reputation of the house at No. 22 Church Row. True, the house has seen violent death over the centuries. None of it suspicious. Until now. Malcolm Kincade, student, Bill Egan, recidivist. Terry Place, villain. Edward, Irene and Nona Pitt, victims. Phyllis Henly, policewoman. Why have they died?
Coffin suspects something more than a haunted house. He sees a human, complex web of relationships, interlocking and interacting in a way he can't yet fathom, and in which people get caught up and destroyed -- as they play into the game of a very clever killer.
