KIRKUS REVIEW

Our white-haired boy in white, young Kildare, making his bi-annual appearance in one of the very best stories of a popular series. This time, Jimmy, happening on a street accident, makes a deadeye diagnosis, slaps down the hysterical and protesting victim, and insists on a street operation, to save her life. He achieves this end, meanwhile neglecting her broken leg for the time being. She is a dancer and brings suit of damages against Kildare and the hospital, and Kildare further jeopardizes his career by withholding evidence at the trial which might harm the girl's reputation. The case is almost lost when Gillespie appears, fillibusters, and vindicates Kildare's position without violating his trust.
