KIRKUS REVIEW

Winner of Mary Roberts Rinehart prize contest, with a different approach than previous winners and net a little quiet humor. Young, unprepossessing lawyer Gilbert Henry, in hunting the value of a stock, runs into murders, family scandals, and company finances that keep him sleepless, foodless, and under constant assault. But he fumbles through to apprehension of the killer and solution of the mystery, link by link. Good entertainment.
