KIRKUS REVIEW

Arthur Crook on the scene of sudden death once again- and again imperturbably setting out to catch the murderer in his own net. There's a reminiscent flavor of Arsenic and Old Lace in this finely wrought yarn, as a glib couple, acting with super-efficiency as housekeeper-gardener-companions to successive elderly people whose common denominator was a well-filled purse and convenient and plausible death, are once again in on demise. Crook's personality dominates the scene- an English village background- in a slick tale.
