KIRKUS REVIEW

The craftiness of irascible H.M. is the means by which he solves a murder 20 years old, a current killing and prevents a third. Artist Drake and his determination to marry Jennifer, a ghost hunting night in the execution shed of an old prison, H.M.'s needling of a doughty oppoment, Lady Brayle, and a cover-up of a monster carnival, are combined to put all the honors in the old trout's hand. Less explosions -- more logic.
