Dead of Night by Peter Whalley

Jack, an antiques dealer, shoots and kills a burglar, and is tried for manslaughter.

However, he is acquitted and on his return home regales his girlfriend Maggie and their neighbors with a disparaging account of the trial.

According to the evidence (most of it Jack's), the victim, Philip Mercer, had broken in late at night, and, on being confronted by Jack, produced a gun that Jack got hold of during the ensuing struggle and then used to kill Mercer.

A clear case of self-defense, or something a little more sinister was it?
