It's the story and perhaps Joel Richards' ingeniously eccentric reading. Of course it's Jack Richard, the novel's protagonist's, monomaniacal fixation. In addition it's the complexity of the really really really bad guy's own sociopathic drivers.
Oh... sorry, I'm thinking with my fingers here, trying to answer why or what works so well in Harry Dolan's "Man With The Crooked Hat" to have - well...
Year's ago there was a TV ad for some crazy glue that bonded a man's hat to a high steel girder with the guy dangling below. And that's the way this book kept me suspended. Hmmmm.... suspended... suspense. Uh-huh, Dolan and Richards have made a suspense novel here.
In fact, this is as much a perilous chase story as a murder puzzle since the who/why bafflers evaporate about Halfway into the book... Leaving one question, um, dangling: How's this all going to end? What happens when a monomaniac meets a sociopath in a death match?
Here's what happens in "The Man With The Crooked Hat". Which has baited me to hunt out another book by Harry Dolan.

This is a quiet and understated book with a good and complicated plot that develops gradually to finally reach a calm conclusion. It’s an interesting take on a whodunnit and works well as long as you’re not looking for pyrotechnics.
