KIRKUS REVIEW

This is the second appearance (Waiting for a Tiger) of Paul Hedley, an artist, who suspects that the death of Christophe Pigotte, an ineffectual painter, may not have been an accident and who questions why Monsieur Krito, a wealthy financier, should be interested in Pigotte's ""terrible pictures."" This along with the attempt to keep Paul from his fiancee (cf. the earlier book) and to pair him off with two other girls, provides a certain romanticoated activity. The mystery's not much but the bougainvillea is in bloom and the Riviera from Eze to Monte Carlo in full Kodachrome.
