KIRKUS REVIEW

A newcomer with a first rate and holding mystery, and a detective who is at times as inadequate and mistaken as the most puzzled of his reading public. A death that was not suicide, four heirs, each with a chance to kill, and three of the four fearful that he would be suspect and manufacturing evidence to throw the detective off the trail -- and an outsider who tried to use his guilty knowledge to pull a blackmail stunt and failed -- a hidden identity in the person of the corpse of a woman who had tried to warn the first victim whose apparent suicide started the whole intricate unravelling of the tangled web:- such is the set up into which John Storm is precipitated.
