THE AMBER EYES by Frances Crane


Email this review


Another Pat and Jean Abbott story, and, while it conveys a comfortable feeling on the part of the reader that all will be well and the least popular figure will be the culprit, it still fails to spark the interest of the earlier books in the series. An ""accidental"" death of a retarded child; a couple of near deaths- and always the same technique of suffocation -- and a family which provides all the necessary motives and a complexity of clues through which Pat treads his way with caution. Jean manages to play safer than usual, so there is less of suspense or more indifference.
