KIRKUS REVIEW

Hilea, eyes and legs for her arthritically crippled father, now impersonates Cousin Fodella in the Smith undertaking family, when Fodella disappears. There she finds much lore of morticians, family troubles, maliciously contrived accidents, and corpsecutting capers, and eventually traps the murderer. Chatty, occupational background of undertaking adding color to disappearances and murders.
