KIRKUS REVIEW

Thomas Elphinstone Hambledon, of Foreign Office Intelligence, requested to break the tantalizing mystery of successive prison-breaks, becomes a prisoner himself to get the story from the inside. In highly mechanized, well-equipped procedures, he follows leads to the pay-off in his own escape, encountering jewels, larceny, clever fellow and murder on route, -- also Bagshott of Scotland Yard. Smooth English. Crime Club.
