KIRKUS REVIEW

The Yard's single minded and able bodied George Gideon again officiates-not only over a fire in a London tenement which wipes out a family of seven, but also with several other cases on his blotter: the rape and strangulation of a young girl; a fraudulent stock issue; a bluebeard- when three women are turned up in one grave; and at home- when his son Matthew gets a girl in trouble. His activities- as well as those of the offenders he will book-are synchronized once again with the expected efficiency of this series.
