KIRKUS REVIEW

More lightheaded and light hearted lethal entertainment from the Littles, when murder breaks out in a New York boarding house and two innocuous old spinsters, and a brother of the landlady are murdered. Diane, a young snip of a snoop, Dennis, with an affectionate eye on her, and her rambunctious father complicate the set-up-and Diane precipitates a not to be foreseen finish concerning heredity and a trust fund. Manner definitely over matter -- not too good a mystery but nice silly-shallying.
