KIRKUS REVIEW

Unmysterious mystery, this story is centered around a blind boy kidnapped by his grandmother, who is trying to make her son-in-law appear irresponsible in the eyes of her daughter, the boy's mother. Assisted by Mollie O'Neal, who is next door baby-sitting, he decides to fool the grandmother by hiding in a secret room which they have conveniently discovered. For added, but irrelevant, excitement a brief appearance is made by an elderly gentleman who was responsible for an old, unsolved murder, and who comes to the secret room to collect his loot. Just why the boy can't leave the house with Molly, or how the grandmother intends to explain the situation to the mother, is the most mysterious part of a contrived, unimaginative adventure.
