KIRKUS REVIEW

Inspector Schmidt, and his amanuensis, Bagby, off their beat but still on the job in Spain where Bagby witnesses the theft of an oyster knife in a restaurant by Sally White of Georgia and later assists in the getaway of a shoe shine boy. A crazy case, this leads into trouble when the body of a Guardia Civil is delivered to Bagby to his hotel- in a clothes hamper- and ties together as a confidence racket is aired... A safe combination, these two, but not too difficult to break.
