KIRKUS REVIEW

A story of vengeance, of a judge who condemned an innocent boy, who was hunted out and forced into a situation from which he could not escape, although he too was not guilty. Brittain in passing a death sentence on young Harry, sets in train the fateful revenge that Harry's brother, Robert, works out, as he first blackmails the publicity hating judge, and then arranges a death that will be blamed on him. The story is the hue and cry that Robert arouses, and the trial of the respectable Brittain- with the solution in two letters after the case is finished. Tight, careful reading, and a fair condemnation of justice as it is practised.
