KIRKUS REVIEW

Ronald, a charming do-and-good-for nothing for all the 52 years of his life, finds himself trapped into marriage by an adamantine seventeen-year-old next door. She falls off a cliff, to her death. Letters, from a blackmailer, drive him to his lawyer, a judge, a vicar and others for reassurance--which he will never receive. The Asking Price seems high; this, for all its customary ease, is a poverty-stricken little story.
