KIRKUS REVIEW

A Minnie Mousetrap about Angle who always seemed to be in a ""walking trance"" although she was usually sitting down, reading fairy stories alone, or later tippling. But she became very, very rich so she acquired a husband who couldn't always have his kinky way with her so he annexed another girl whom Angle found bleeding, warm, and dead in a Hefty bag. This sent Angie out of her sick head into a nursing home until finally she came to be the protegee of Peregrine Palfrey Devonwood Donnisthorpe who needed someone like her to perpetuate the family name. Goodness knows why. In fact goodness knows from nothing here, since this is one of those silly stories you write off except as an omen of its second coming.
