KIRKUS REVIEW

The appropriation of his name leads Basil Willing to a dinner party, given by a psychiatrist, where his impersonator is killed, and where the guests, patients of the host, provide some problems marital and lethal. Further physical and psychic deterioration, an allusion Keats and a parallel in Dickens, enables Dr. Willing to put a stop to a dark practice. The touch here is once again smooth, sleek and suspiciously synthetic.
