KIRKUS REVIEW

Interior decorators Emily and Henry Bryce are indirectly involved in the anonymous attempt (hoax or smear) to ruin U.N. envoy Pierre Marie Cloche, whose appeal for a loan for his poor African country will be invalidated by his newly done over apartment with a gold piano and a desk with medallion portraits of Marx and Engels. Two murders contribute but do not really complicate... The Bryces' lighthearted, scatterbrained busy-ness is the real trompe l'oeil; skittish it may be but sketchy it is.
