Crooked Street by Patricia Masters. Published by Severn House

A cramped British neighborhood of Victorian homes is the setting for this claustrophobic mystery. DI Joanna Piercy and DS Mike Korpanski have been called to the neighborhood by the wife of a missing man. Jadon Glover is a wonderful, upstanding man, she claims, and when he doesn’t come home one night, she insists he’s met with ill fortune. The Mike and Joanna have seen too much in their police work to believe that any marriage is perfect and privately wonder if Jadon has just taken off. Still, they begin to question the neighbors and discover, that behind the Victorian facades there are many secrets, any one of which might explain what happened to their missing man. The tension in this story builds slowly but inexorably toward the finish. A first rate British police procedural
