The Suspect by L. R. Wright

Today I finished reading The Suspect by L. R. Wright.

The Suspect was the winner of the 1986 Edgar Award.  And I read it as a part of my effort to read all of the Edgar Award winning novels.

The Suspect is uniquely plotted.  It tells the story of an eighty year old man who murdered his eighty-six year old brother-in-law.  It is unique because it deals with an elderly criminal.  The ending is an interesting twist on the theme of crime and punishment.

It is a short novel, 214 pages, well worth reading.
