KIRKUS REVIEW

The disappearance of America's richest woman from a resort hotel in ""Tecos"", (Taos?), New Mexico, brings a New York detective to the spot, there to do his stuff right under the noses of the local authorities. Everyone seems to have a motive -- nobody has an alibi -- plenty of red herrings and skeletons rattling in closets --Finally, a confession of concealed evidence pointing to a criminal safely out of reach proves too pat, with one weak link -- and the real murderer is caught. Not up to its predecessors; dialogue artificial; too much leniency taken for granted down the line.
