KIRKUS REVIEW

Better as a novel than as a mystery, this third of the adventures of Reynold Frame. On the verge of marriage to Connie Wilder (remember Wilders Walk Away?) Frame again entangles himself in a series of oddities, -- a haunting, a finding of a corpse in a well, a kidnapping of a centennarian, a case of dual identity, a mystery of a lost Emerson- Thoreau manuscript. Elaborate plotting and not too convincing unravelling, but good reading.
