DEATH-WISH GREEN by Frances Crane


Email this review


Pat and Jean Abbot are almost too opportunely on the spot when the disappearance of Katie Spinner off the Golden Gate Bridge precipitated an investigation with a multitude of ramifications. No one who knew Katie well believed in the theory of suicide, but it took another accident- or was it murder?- of a model friend of Katie's and a strange succession of involvements linking society figures with the beatnik crowd, before identities were disentangled, associations clarified and a solution reached. Too many irons in this particular fire -- and for the average reader confusion is worse confounded by liberal use of the beatnik jargon and some pretty cheap assumptions.
