Attack on a dead man . . .

In Winston Graham's The Tumbled House, a vicious attack on the late Sir John Marlowe Q.C. in The Sunday Gazette is unsigned. Don Marlowe, his son — a prominent young conductor — is determined to discover the identity of the journalist. He succeeds, and precipitates a gruelling court action. But ironically it is Don who stands accused. And in defending himself and his father’s name, he finds he is destroying his marriage to Joanna — the beautiful and wayward young actress . . .

Thriller-like suspense, romantic interest and acute observation.
