Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR & RARE------------------GOLDILOCKS by Ed McBain.

Goldilocks is a tale of adultery and murder. And everbody seems to be lying. When Maureen Purchase and her daughters are found savagely murdered, her husband's alibi doesn't check out. Playing cards? At A bar? Telling his lover he was going to leave his wife? His 1st wife is glad the 2nd is dead, his son is claiming credit for the murders and his lover claims to not know him. When his lawyer, Matthew Hope tries to get to the bottom of things, he can't tell the lies from the alibis and indeed Matthew Hope is lying to himself, as he promises HIS lover that he will leave HIS wife. All of this makes a compelling mystery and as delivered by Ed McBain, it is a great start to another series from the master of the police procedural.
