KIRKUS REVIEW

Another tandem telling of crime in relation to others than the killer does not here involve Maigret. The first is a self examination of a French Judge trying an accused murderer and, identifying himself with the accused, checking innocent trivialities, results in the recognition that he too could be judged culpable. The second is an American scene and follows the father of a 16 year old boy, who, when caught with his girl, admits to theft and murder and repudiates all his life with his father. Precision jobs for the fans.
