KIRKUS REVIEW

This was scheduled last Spring, then serialized in Good Houskeeping, and postponed to this date. Winner of the Mary Roberts Rinehart mystery contest. A new field for Clarissa Cushman, this mystery romance in the vein of Leslie Ford. Grand reading, with amusing dialogue, and extraordinary situations, in which you can see the novelist who tells the story, putting her own head into the noose, while the plot thickens around her. Two murders -- the setting a small, closely knit community, up the Hudson, and a solution involving a case of a drug addict and mistaken identity -- after lots of false clues are dragged back and forth. Good yarn.
