KIRKUS REVIEW

The emotional pitch is high for the mystery of Maggie Lane, night club chanteuse, who marries rich George Carver when he is drunk, and refuses to be bought off at any price. The Carver family suffer at this ""impossible"" marriage, while Maggie continues her own way until Mrs. Carver's attempt at suicide convinces her that the rich are not invulnerable, that her revenge on that class is empty satisfaction. But Anthony Carver, eldest son, realizes Maggie's real worth, overlooks her past, and takes his brother's place as Maggie's husband....The cancealed motivation here lends a certain drama to what is otherwise keyed to lightgrade-lowgrade-rentals.
