a serial murderer by playing on the killer's perverse vanity. He finally
succeeds when an important clue leads him to a trio of suspects. But the
three are entangled in a web of guilt and possessiveness so tight that the
unraveling nearly exhausts the Inspector-until, at last, he discovers the tortured
motives behind the murders.
