KIRKUS REVIEW

A sustained status of suspicion, against Ruth Purdy, who is tried for the murder of her husband, a sedate and proprietary older man, and acquitted for lack of a reasonable doubt. But doubt remains, in the mind of Lieutenant Forbes who finds further evidence against her, and in the mind of Arnold Bricker, the lawyer she later marries, when an old love affair is revived and a motive supplied, until a second death definitively closes the case. Intelligent, intense.
