Email this review


The author of last year's Dark Passage and this fall's Behold This Woman (Appleton-Century) with a sure, sustained story of a chase when Vanning, accidentally involved in the aftermath of a bank robbery and the killing of a man, is left holding the bag- with the money-, loses it in his escape, and is wanted by the police, by the hoisters. Knowing no one to trust, not Martha with whom he falls in love, Vanning is doubly tracked, and only in another shooting- this time on the side of the law- is able to remember where he had left the evidence which will clear him... Holding.
