KIRKUS REVIEW

The handling is as economical as ever but the plot is more penurious and the character by now is a fixture-- the convict just released from prison who has decided to go clean. This time it's Ritchie Duncan who is handed some topsecret film by a girl in a bar. Her connection is murdered; she's kept quietly alive in a nursing home until Duncan salvages her; and at the end he turns to the authorities to finish off the case he could not quite bring off alone... Passable, possible stuff.
