KIRKUS REVIEW

California setting for a good whodunit. Playing card lore lands this in the ""speciality background"" class. A private investigator and an ex-army officer work together to find the killer of inventor-chemist-playing card collector, and his brother-in-law and an international spy. Triple set of complications add to the general tangle. The ex-army man wins out over the private dick. Entertaining yarn.
