KIRKUS REVIEW

The ne plus better Mrs. Fleming with another different story--they're always different--of Robert Cravenhead who abandons his wife with justification, his business, and his old self to take up residence in Cornwall. It's just a cottage but it comes equipped with a raped (later killed) girl in a bathroom--poor Biddy Hallow who has no marbles and probably didn't even know what was happening. Then there's an attractive artist-social worker, and a man who fishes in his boat and has misconceived IRA ideals. Mrs. Fleming's characters are ingratiating and her story is nicely poised between malice and genuine menace.
