KIRKUS REVIEW

Less and less detection, more and more suspense-romance from veteran Summerton as Liz Ashley, a nice enough narrator, answers the summons of fostersister Olivia, who's being held prisoner (drugs and love) in Italy by her fortunehunting husband. Liz and dashing Patrick Harlow sneak in and around the villa, match slow wits with Olivia's mother-in-law and Italian gangsters, and, having rescued the distressed damsel (who turns out not to have been worth the trouble) settle down to bliss. Pedestrian crossings, with better-than-that touches of character amid the gaspings.
