THE MAN WHO LOOKED BACK

The progressive murders of Roy Unithorne, who hopes to escape the mediocrity of his wife- and his life, provides a careful portrait of a personality off balance. For while the disarmingly simple device by which Roy effects the disposition of Amy seems ""lawless, the discrepancies in his story alert and alarm a girl he had once known, her , and the woman with whom he lodges, and the unpredictable possibility forces him to kill again, constricts the case against him... British, acerb, apt.
