KIRKUS REVIEW

The discovery of two bodies in an abandoned car by Harry Gross, a game warden and happily married to the best of wives but too good a mother, involves more than his sense of duty, as the husband of Libby, whom he had once loved, is suspected to be the killer. With the possibility- if Cal is caught- that Libby will now be free for him, if he is also free, he recognizes his own potential toward violence which may be any man's... An equation of intentions and impulses, sobered by small detail, brightened by humor.
