KIRKUS REVIEW

Adventure and reward in the nation's capital follows in the thematic footsteps of Indian Drums Beat Again and by way of being a forced cops and robbers affair that doesn't ring true. Twelve year old Jimmy, whose father has a government job, is given a champion setter puppy. Subsequently, he's befriended by a Senator McCabe who has his chauffeur Pat help Jimmy train Red for a show in New York. After some bad behaviour on Red's part, he begins to show his true colors- in more ways than one, for besides winning near honors in the show, he attacks a man after the Sanator's top secret atomic energy papers, preventing theft. But a rather stuffy emulation of these chance happenings culminates in a surfeit of awards all the way around.
