Her husband, Wade, meanwhile, is in the beginning stages of early-onset dementia, further blurring the truth as his memories become tangled. In the same book, Van Dine detailed Vance's physical features: He was unusually good-looking, although his mouth was ascetic and cruel According to some contemporary critics, these mannerisms of Vance were affectations, which made him look like a foppish dandy, a poseur.

      It is no exaggeration to say that the characters who inhabit these works seem to exert an undue - possibly malign - power upon the psyche of the reader who stumbles, hapless, upon them. Based on an old ballad, it is the story of the apprentice George Barnwell, who, infatuated by a courtesan, murders his wealthy uncle. Book 4 is spoken by a lawyer, Tertium Quid, who has no connection to the case but gives what he claims is a balanced, unbiased view of proceedings. But under this roof, you must temper your tongue.
