Nearly finished with John D. Macdonald's AREA OF SUSPICION, a very typical JD story of a macho business exec returning home after four years in Florida to investigate his brother's death. Not one of JD's better stories, I think -- too long and the protagonists moral ruminations are a little tiresome. Very curious about the original piece this is based on, though (the copyright page says it's based on a Collier's piece entitled "My Brother's Widow"). I have a suspicion the original piece is superior.
