KIRKUS REVIEW

Vergil Tibbs again (The Heat of the Day, etc. and if you don't remember, he'll remind you) in a slim matter of the murder of a jade dealer and the introduction of a deadly substitute for heroin by the Chicoms. Then there's an attractive half ""Negro,""-half Nisei girl who prompts some talk in Vergil's softspoken fashion midway between sentiment and social concern. The cool of the afternoon.
