KIRKUS REVIEW

With a stress (as in her The Body on the Sidewalk) on the prosaic in the lives of plain people in a small California town, this revives- with the visit of a Chicago homicide man, O'Malley, the unsolved strangling of a girl some twenty years back. Sensitive to the unnatural reticence of one of a group of solid citizens, O'Malley reaches a certainty of guilt with no evidence to go on, but when the criminal is cornered a similar situation forces his hand to kill again. Careful, credible.
