The Perfectionist By

The Perfectionist Martin Pryor is a perfectionist who stages a meticulously-plotted accident to kill his wife...and just when it seems like he's committed a flawless crime, he gets a note from a blackmailer demanding money not to expose the details of the murder.

"A meticulous study of a man who is convinced of his own superiority. The murderer finds the puzzle of identifying the blackmailer stimulating, feeling confident of winning the battle of wits. The careful development of the mystery story and the skill with which the murderer is turned into a sympathetic character makes Kauffmann appear something of a perfectionist in the field of writing."
