KIRKUS REVIEW

How admirably Michael Gilbert carries on, year in, year out, with his classical modern stories of crime, well-appointed and well-processed to their believable conclusions. This one is set in a boys' school where one youngster had earlier met a brutal, unresolved death; now there is every reason to worry over the Israeli ambassador's son, also a pupil, since his father has been the victim of Jordanian terrorists. A replacement teacher, Manifold, whose name implies that he serves in more than one capacity, connects the case to quite another facility. All of it comes across with Mr. Gilbert's even-handed confidence, so well deserved.
