Ross does first class pot boilers, along with more serious writing, and with his humorous gems (Hyman Kaplan et al). This is of the first genre, -- good pace, slick dialog, easy entertainment. It is a shortish yarn of political redemption manoeuvered by an ace newspaperman. It might conceivably be the story behind one of the investigations, with a bit of political doublecrossing and finagling, as Jeff tries to save his chief, gets caught in the net himself, apparently turns against the side for which he had stood, and in the end, succeeds in putting the spotlight on the necessary information and clearing the man to whom he is really loyal. This was published serially as Washington Correspondent.
