KIRKUS REVIEW

As British as a bowler, this second case for Supt. Adam Dalgliesh down in Suffolk, England, which is also the venue for some infighting among a small local literary clique. And the death of mystery writer Maurice Seton whose latest plot ploy is actualized by his own death, a handless corpse drifting out to sea. His relatives dead and alive, his secretary with a twisted mind as well as crippled legs, and a number of other writers provide a close, concentrated case of considerable superiority.
