KIRKUS REVIEW

We were an far out on a limb with her first opus that we are a bit scary about committing ourselves on this. So here goes for straight reporting -- minus comment. Gypsy, trouping through Texas in a trailer with Biff, her husband of a week, her mother and a string of burlesque beauts has a triple murder on her hands. Mother, whose methods are all her own, buries one body, fires the trailer, confesses to murder and ends up the unwitting victim of dope and a dope ring. Gypsy and Biff help and hinder local Sheriff in finding out what's what. All the titillating tidbits of the trade, and the horsy hilarity of her first succes fou. The publishers expect to duplicate that.
