Sinopsis: Prosecutor Helen West is a rare combination of jaundiced pragmatism and well-guarded vulnerability. When the overall evidence in a string of recent rape cases points to a police officer who is best friend to her craggy, rumpled lover, Superintendent Geoffrey Bailey, their brooding romance forms the bittersweet counterpoint to Helen's delving into this most upsetting of crimes.
Críticas: All of the guilt, pain, and ugliness that surrounds the crime of rape are woven deep into the fabric of Frances Fyfield's splendid novel about London prosecutor Helen West and her lover, high-echelon police officer Geoffrey Bailey. One of Bailey's protégés, a rough, unlovable sergeant named Ryan, has been accused of several rapes. Fyfield is so skilled at creating and maintaining suspense that we're never sure of Ryan's guilt or innocence until the very end, even though we know that another man, a mysterious doctor, is responsible for some of the vicious attacks. While the rape investigations unfold, West and Bailey make plans to be married, which is another event made believably uncertain by Fyfield's uncanny ability to probe human doubts and frailties. Other Fyfield books available in paperback include Perfectly Pure and Good, A Question of Guilt, and Shadows on the Mirror.
