I like this the best of anything he has written for many years. It is a good family novel, first rate rental library material, faint mystery flavor for the mystery audience. A murder trial tests out each member of a family for a different set of fundamental values. The wife and son believe the husband guilty, but stand by from duty, while the trial bringe out their true friends, rips off the unrealities of their old life, seemingly source in its Boston social position. Mrs. Sentry finds again her old love and trust and loses her snobbishness. And eventually her faith is vindicated.
