KIRKUS REVIEW

A stalk, sleek and sinister, as a very young wife sets out to prove alone that her husband, convicted of murder, is innocent. With a monogrammed matchbox and an address book to go on, she comes up against the dead woman's husband, gutted by liquor, -- a dope dealer, -- a debonair man about town, who falls in love with her, -- and a mobster. And, at a price, she frees her husband. Terror tale -- the best she's done.
