By Julian Gloag

First released in 1967, it is a story of Jordan Maddox who has so disciplined his personal feelings that he has, in truth, little touch with existence: detached, he not responds to the symptoms of love-even of desperation- from those people who are with regards to him.

Suddenly he reveals himself accused of mur­der.

At first he reacts lightly. it sort of feels to him an absurd, nearly an a laugh, mistake. To his spouse, his neighbors, his very loss of ardour is evidence of his innocence. yet to the police, Maddox is the in charge guy. At their fingers he's relentlessly stripped of his invulnerability.

Imprisoned, on my own, ignoring the insistent calls for of his personal safeguard, he units out to discover his as far back as lifestyles. within the thoughts of his early life and within the act of dying and vio­lence of which he stands accused, Maddox submits himself to a much more the most important, way more agonizing trial than the only during which he ap­pears each day because the defendant. For his genuine trial is that of a guy making an attempt, for the 1st time, probably too overdue, to just accept the responsi­bilities of living.
