KIRKUS REVIEW

The year's best is not the best in the fourteen years of this series- but there's superior suspense in- Thomas Flanagan's Suppose you Were on the Jury, the sophistry of a motive revealed too late; Frank Ward's The Dark Corner in a church where a priest has died; Hugh Pentecost's The Day The Children Vanished- nine of them in a school bus; Helen Nielsen's Your Witness in which a woman watches her trial lawyer husband destroy an innocent man to clear a guilty client. With the exception of Craig Rice, Roy Vickers and William O'Farrell- new names complete the collection..... Calculable.
