KIRKUS REVIEW

Labeled a ""mystery-comedy"" this comes closer to an opera bouffe with its background of San Juan el Pirata, in the Ligurian Sea, its omnipotent Grand Duke, and the teacup-tossed tempest that involves the will of the people for canonizing a local saint. The Duke disposes, an English tourist guesses, a murder is averted in a Norman Douglas-Aubrey Menen cutting through of the people, the issues, (the profits) and the history involved. Precise and precious.
