KIRKUS REVIEW

Howard Yates, a lawyer in a New York City suburb, is asked for help by the Merriweathers, his good friends and kind neighbors, when they are involved in the unlikeliest circumstances; Ann Merriweather, a particularly lovely young woman, is almost killed, and a little later Charles is arrested after the body of a man has been found in the trunk of his car. Yates takes the case which is increasingly impossible to contest; Charles proves to have been a liar as well as unfaithful to his wife. But while he is electrocuted for a crime he insists until the end he did not commit- a residual doubt remains, for a grim latterday revelation.... Insidiously potent.
