KIRKUS REVIEW

A derivation of the Cain-Chandler formula, this is a barsh tight tale of indemnity and murder -- of Joe Wilmot, small town motion picture operator, Elizabeth, the wife he did not love, Carol, the girl with whom he slept. Remorseless but not nerveless, Joe is closed in on by his business competitors, by Carol and her mistrust, and finally by the police in the inevitable exposure. Holding.
