Trial and Error (Arcturus Crime Classics) - Anthony Berkeley

this sounds like a frickin' blast--terminally ill man decides to find someone he judges to be a human being unworthy to live, murders him, sees someone else charged with the crime, and works to establish that the cops have got the wrong man. I've read and enjoyed one other novel by Berkeley--that would be Before the Fact, which he wrote as Francis Iles. I wonder if this one can be even half as good, but the plot synopsis suggests there's a chance.
