KIRKUS REVIEW

F.D.R. is said to have loved a fireside mystery story and called a summit conference to chain-write this one which, presumably, he masterminded. Jim Blake, with a venal white Russian wife Ilka, arranges a new identity (plastic surgery; ventriloquism), buries his own self, a death for which Ilka is held responsible. Too many cooks cooked up this one--in the beginning Ilka says ""I loaf you"" and by the end she's lost that awful accent but then, it's an old-fashioned novelty item....Contributors Rupert Hughes, Samuel Hopkins Adams, Anthony Abbot, Rita Weiman, S. S. Van Dine and John Erskine.
