KIRKUS REVIEW

Irene, fortunately a sensible girl, comes to Alcombra, the home of the dying Lady Stewart, which is as loaded as the Prado with paintings, etc., while her companion, the Senhora, and assorted relatives (a niece, a grandnephew, a stepson, et al.) seem to be avid hangers-on. One is murdered behind a suit of armor; there are some stolen items and a fire and of course a romance to fit the requirements of the category and the readership which is not very choosy to begin with. But it's all adorned from here to there in breathing color.
