In response, Cutter sort of has a bit of a mooch around to find out what's going on. Along the way he finds out some things that are aren't too nice about his wife, child, his wife's boss, and his former boss that all put them in the frame for the murders.
This isn't a bad book, but it isn't great either. The central character it's proactive enough to my mind. His wife and son are clearly up to something, but he makes no real effort to front up soon enough to either of them. This might have happened to make the story work better, but I think it's a rum old do if you're changing character to fit story, if you ask me.
In addition, I didn't particularly like Cutter's wife and child either. What we find out about them along the way had me confused about how they'd stayed together so long.
