KIRKUS REVIEW

The hunt for a newborn baby, stolen from a hospital nursery, and his kidnaper is the core of Inspector Hedding's bloodhounding. The picture of the thwarted mother, schizoid Alice, and her fantasies when she steals the infant and hides him out with her husband who is ignorant of her actions; the contrast of the real parents' growing tragedy with the new mother's hysterical retreat from reality; and the little steps that lead Hedding closer to his goal -- this is suspense, feminine fashion.
