Easter Wells comes to London and finds himself the 'talk' of the town! He's stared at, with awe, with shock, with so much "unbelievability" that he turns 'inquisitive' of the shadow that he is to the people around and the shadow a man who lived 20 years ago had cast on the people around then. Written in the 'theatrical language' of a Victorian era - or at least that's what I feel!
AN INQUISITIVE MAN
Oct 17, M. Peacock rated it it was amazing Shelves: mystery. Mr Easter Wells arrives in London from America and finds he is being stared at - at the docks, in the street, in the smart society salons, everybody looks at him as though he must be a ghost. He soon finds out that he is a 'dead ringer' for a man who died twenty years before - a man whom everyone believed had been murdered. This is a stylishly written novella with a cast of well-drawn characters, an intriguing investigation and a clever denouement - a perfect entertainment for a rainy afternoon.
I hope the author will turn his talents to a full-length novel soon.
