SOUND OF ROWLOCKS

A book that falls in the mystery class, presumably, though it is actually a novel in which a murder is the pivotal point. Well-sustained plot, with suspicion directed now here, now there, legitimately; with a summer motor cycle cop, short term resident of an island off Cape Cod, presumably the detective, while actually the dumb-bell native marshall putters around and unearths the salient facts which eventually release certain suspects and pin the crime on the right party. Good downeast background; exceptionally well told tale; and a thread of romance. In spite of ranking tops in the mystery field, this seems a disappointment from a man one associates with rather powerful psychological novels and short stories.
