A CAPITOL OFFENSE

On a special Foreign Office mission, Oxford Don Ambrose Usher brings his philosophy to bear on a murder in the British Embassy in Washington. Trouble shooting for a fault in security, Usher confounds Shaughnessy of Homicide in his untanglement of international interests, in his cutting across the would be straight line of police and FBI investigation and in his reversing the field when it comes to putting the pieces in place. A quite lofty dome doing-in, with some stimulating verbal fireworks, this is caviare for a special market.
