Was looking for Mr Lardo via the Archy McNally books (great series) and stumbled upon this little gem. Captivating from the first page; nice plot and twists!!!
Witness to the killing is Anthony Reo, part of the wealthy side of town. He struggles to save his marriage from the intrusion of Mark, who sees Anthony's spouse as the inheritor of billions and therefore, fair game. Not so suprisingly, Anthony sees his wife the same way. Into the mix come police detective Eddy Evans who finds the poor and the rich refusing to cooperate in his investigation into the murder of the second Ms. Miller.
THE HAMPTON AFFAIR is a well-written police procedural that centers on class distinction. The story line is told to the readers from three different perspectives (upper, middle, and lower classes), which Vincent Lardo handles with ease, making it simple yet complex for the reader to follow. However, no character surfaces that hook the audience. All are selfish with personal agendas that stop at nothing, even murder and manipulation. That lack of warmth towards anyone leaves a minor ripple in what is a well-written plot.
