KIRKUS REVIEW

The trial of Alice Williston, whore, for the murder of an only friend, (not lover) which proceeds from the rougher inquisition of the police to the more sympathetic investigation of D. A. Frost. Refusing to take a plea, defenseless and unprotesting, Alice goes on the stand, is saved by Frost's patient pursuit of earlier evidence. Relying on the breakdown, not the buildup, this holds interest on its angles, not activities, and is a Crime Club Selection.
