A line of blood

McPherson, Ben, author

Alex Mercer and his son Max find their next-door neighbour dead in the bath. It looks like suicide, but the police want to talk to Alex's wife. Millicent married Alex for a work permit: at least that has become the myth. The truth is they married for love, but neither wants to be exposed as a romantic. They swear and smoke in front of their son, but that's as far as their rebelliousness goes. The police question Millicent about a bracelet found at the neighbour's house. She admits to a mild flirtation - nothing more. But Max knows things about his mother that no son should know, and he wants to share that burden with his father. Alex starts to wonder how close he came to losing his wife. Part of him is almost glad the neighbour is dead. Then the murder investigation begins
