KIRKUS REVIEW

Lt. Decker, Jub Freeman (of his earlier books) along with Mitch Taylor, a not too honest cop, as the Homicide Squad closes in on big shot Garvey, who owns the rest of the police department. When the trail of a missing husband leads to murder, a $10,000 hat and a tax evasion, it is Decker who builds his case but cannot prove it, while laboratory scientist Freeman through some new windows on an old house - turns in the evidence. A blunt portrayal of a city police force in action against the fix and the finagle of patronage.
