KIRKUS REVIEW

A suspense science setting for the story of Ellen Vaughn, currently unmarried and involved in the issues which the accidental deaths of her father and older brother have brought about. For the acoustical inventions and productions of her somewhat fabulous father are the focus of inimical business interests; through his wire recordings she learns the treachery of a possible fiance and because of the danger of a search for a block of stock, also wire-recorded, she sets up a new coding for the files. In her audio-backtracking and with intense concentration on her father's idiosyncrasies and methods, she finally unearths not only the stock information but a tape of the conversation between her father and her brother which gives her the power-weapon she needs. In line with the hunt techniques of this offers superior mental entertainment.
