KIRKUS REVIEW

A story of fear and the outcome of a playwright's attempts to evade the man who haunted him from schooldays which takes Margan Vale again into the life of Vincent Collins, sadist and Vale's nemesis. Collins pursues Vale, tells him his secret and so binds Vale to him more closely; Vale, hoping to rid himself of his terrors, tries to lay Collins' ghost by writing about him, is in turn driven back to Collins. A tale of psychological possession, which with a certain measure of hysteria manages some intensity, but does not maintain its force throughout.
