KIRKUS REVIEW

Sara Dacre is attracted by a bright stone on a costume jewelry counter, buys it for twenty cents- and with it a lot of trouble when she learns that it is the monster ruby known as the Fire of India. A man is murdered; the ruby vanishes along with the man she loves; and strange encounters, unknown assailants and pursuants unnerve her.... The ruby is about the only real thing around here, but she gives it quite a whirl, and there's an air, however undeserved, of unmistakable menace.
