KIRKUS REVIEW

Of the tertiary lump of limestone known as the island of Palleria, on which, during the war year of 1942, occurred the breakdown of individual aloofness and the building up of new, unexpected relationships. A Cabinet Minister, on route to questionable associations, is suspect of treason; a glamorous star has a more than passing romance; and an ageing Army officer finds that loyalty is more than a word as one of his underlings commits a decisive, lethal act in doing away with the Cabinet Minister...The murder, and a subsequent fire, mark a crisis in the lives of those involved... Very smooth, very nice.
