KIRKUS REVIEW

Toronto's Inspector Sands (of Well of Eyes) in another suave and sinister tale of terrorisation as Lucille Morrow, a second wife, absed by the death of her predecessor, is frightened into refuge in an insane-asylum. The death -- by murder -- of a gutter bum who had contacted her, -- the death -- by shock -- of an inmate of the asylum, leads to a third as Duelle is driven by fear to suicide. A novel of crime; this is a closewebbed tale of emotional exaggeration and mental unbalance, and a very accomplished performance.
