This is one for the crime fiction fans. ‘The Hanged Man’s Tale’ follows the police investigation of a murder where the victim is found hanging inside a canal tunnel in Paris with a tarot card in his pocket. The book is written by Gerald Jay, the nom de plume of the late creative writing academic and author, Gerald Jay Goldberg.
The storyline will be familiar to anyone who has read or watched crime fiction; murder victim found, scapegoat accused, and police detective determined to find the real killer despite protests from his superiors. It’s the second novel featuring the protagonist Inspector Paul Mazarelle.
