KIRKUS REVIEW

Turning from straight homicide to the suspense story, this is synchronized at a high speed and tells of the murder of McGurn, gambling boss, on the Ferris wheel at an amusement pier. In the search that follows for Ellen Haven, the only witness, Tony Webb-just out of San Quentin, and Art Smith, copper, pursue Ellen with varied intents but equal intensity to a deadly finish.... Successful stuff.
