We Recommend… Sandrine’s Case by Thomas H. Cook

Sandrine’s Casesandrine's case
by Thomas H. Cook

Sandrine’s Case by Thomas H. Cook is not a typical mystery.  The author is a master of the literary mystery, and in Sandrine’s Case we follow the husband after the death of his wife, Sandrine.  Until almost the very end, it is up in the air whether he killed her or she committed suicide.  As his trial progresses the author fills in the past for Sam and Sandrine, and, although for most of the book Sam shows himself to be a rather elitist and most unpleasant fellow, by the end all is made clear, both to Sam and to the reader.  A most engaging mystery and well worth reading.
