LADY KILLER by Elisabeth Sanxay Holding

Email this review


Two way title for doubletrouble on a cruise ship, and another smooth confusion of strange occurrences, fears, suspense. There is Honey, 23, blonde, married to a dour fusser of fifty. There is a South American slickster and Alma, his rich wife, who loses her trunks, jewels, and gets sicker day by day. And there is Mrs. Condy, an adventuress, whom Honey finds murdered but no one believes her. Stalled, warned off, deserted by her husband who finds her too unsettling, Honey goes on and forces the situation to a dog-cat-dog conclusion. Suave and expert entertainment.
