The Accident.

by Linwood. Barclay

Publication: Orion, 2011, London

First edition. Fine in fine dust jacket. Glen Barber isn't the only person in the small town of Milford with things on his mind. The recession has taken a toll on his construction business, especially after a mysterious fire destroys one of his buildings. Everyone else in Milford seems to have problems too, as the financial pressures begin to pinch. Glen's troubles escalate to a whole new level when his wife, Sheila, is found at the scene of a drunk-driving accident that took three lives. Not only is she dead, but it appears she was the cause of the accident. Suddenly Glen has to deal with a mixture of emotions: grief at the loss of his wife, along with anger at her reckless behavior that leaves their young daughter motherless. If only he could convince himself that Sheila wasn't responsible for the tragedy.
