CATCH-AS-CATCH-CAN by Charlotte Armstrong


Email this review


Dee Allison and her fiance Andy Talbot in a race to find Dee's young cousin Laila and get her to a hospital for antitoxin, balked by cousin Clive who sees in Laila's death by poison a chance for inheritance. Pretending to help Laila, pretending to help in the search for her, Clive's attempts are not successful and it is the obstacles, the slow line-up of information that keeps the chase tense. Pre-fab but fast.
