KIRKUS REVIEW

David Nelson pits imagination against Scotland Yard routine when he elects to pursue his own course of investigation on the murder of Willie Strayte. Strayte had gotten the editorship of a new crime magazine promised to Nelson; Nelson learns his wife had been Strayte's mistress, and, doubly suspect, tries to find the link between a 1923 South African killing and the present. His success however commits him to a life he had hoped to leave. A lone wolf hunt in London pressure publishing is persuasive.
