Review: The Man by the Sea

The Man by the Sea The Man by the Sea by Jack Benton
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

John "Slim" Hardy, heavy drinker and disgraced soldier turned bumbling private detective, is hired to investigate Ted Douglas, an investment banker who slips out of work every Friday to visit a desolate cove on the Lancashire coast. There, he walks to the shore, opens an old book, and begins to read aloud.

His wife thinks he's having an affair. Slim thinks he's insane.

The truth is more incredible than either could imagine.
