A Certain Blindness
Publisher: Collins (1980)
This is the first book in the Eric Ward series. Eric Ward is training to be a solicitor after giving up his police career due to glaucoma. In the eyes of solicitor Eric Ward, there was something odd about Arthur Egan's life and death. Egan's estate comprised a large sum, to go to an heir no one knew he had. Egan had served a term for manslaughter committed during an armed robbery on Lord Morcomb's estate. Indications were that the evidence against him had been planted. The present Lord Morcomb was facing heavy death duties, and Ward's firm had to advise how these could be handled. Despite warnings from the senior partner that he was wasting time on the Egan estate, Ward persisted - and his investigations soon led to murder.
