Jeffrey Ashford, the master of crime fiction, gives us a compelling portrait of an ordinary man under extraordinary pressure, in Loyal Disloyalty.
When a woman is lured into a car and raped, Richard Adeane begins to suspect his brother-in-law. Should he betray his estranged wife's confidence, knowing she values loyalty far more than most, or act on his suspicions and face the consequences?
"Not a comma is wasted as Ashford engineers this perfectly calibrated little thriller." -- Washington Post Book World on The Price of Failure (1998)
