KIRKUS REVIEW

The referral is to the Greek myth; the crime is a felony-murder, although this has more to do with Intelligence. Drama critic Herk(imer) goes to help his friend whose wife has been arrested -- they're counterculture people -- and this is full of other contemporary ""tinselism"" since Miss Rennert sounds more like Rona Barrett than Herk. She also hyphenates everything but the plot in this dull-as-ditchwater-""hooha"" by the time she gets through talking you to another kind of death.
