KIRKUS REVIEW

Evening and night in a New Mexico resort town, with natives, tourists, artists, an Indian oil-millionaire and his ex-waitress wife, a gigolo, a spinster-librarian seeking adventure, all chance visitors in the Blue Heaven Cafe. There is no attempt at formulated plot. This is simply a slice out of life in our own South-west, an unsavory slice and an unpleasant set of characters. As a sample of the hard-boiled school of writing, this is a poor relation. Sharply limited in appeal.
