Publisher's Summary

In 1963, the fast-moving, suspenseful serial The Desperate People kept TV audiences hooked as they tried to piece together the clues to Rex Holt's mysterious death. Now, in this exciting novelisation, the truth is revealed... Rex Holt - a nice lad, carefree, brimming with over-confidence - is found dead in a hotel room out in the country. It seems as though he has committed suicide. But Philip Holt is convinced that his brother has been murdered; and his conviction brings him up against those who cheat, who rob, who go to the utmost lengths to achieve their aim - the desperate people to whom murder is one of the norms of life.

Full of his trademark ingenious plotting and with red herrings aplenty, this classic crime novel will appeal to all fans of Paul Temple.

    "MURDER MYSTERY WITH A TOUCH OF NOSTALGIA"

    A murder mystery with a touch of nostalgia for a bygone elegant and more sedate era, this book nevertheless presents an exciting well-paced story with a timeless and universal theme. With a well-choreographed plot full of twists and turns and beautifully cast voices, Francis Durbridge provides a thoroughly enjoyable listening experience and is highly recommended.
