SLEEP WITH SLANDER by Dolores Hitchens


Email this review


Private operative Sader is approached by prominent, elderly Gibbings to find the grandchild out of wedlock which had been given out for adoption some years ago- now on the evidence of a letter received- neglected and brutalized. Sader's search turns up many secret to surprising unknowns; the adoptive parents are presumably dead; so is the child- although there is another youngster involved; a murder attends his inquiry, and he is stalked in his pursuit to save the child he knows to be abused but still alive. A young victim is again (opus previous) a soft spot for suspense, and this will hold your interest while not altogether commanding your belief.
