KIRKUS REVIEW

A new publisher for a another of Shearing's precise, pointed period pieces of passion, frustration and murder in a crime chronicle of the last century. Elegant, extravagant, week and a little foolish, May, at seventeen, marries a Manchester broker, out of her class, John Tyler, gross, ambitious and cold blooded. Among his foibles, -- a taste for arsenio, a common law wife and family and miscellaneous mistresses, provide background for a novel of reprisal and revenge. Shearing has a following.
