KIRKUS REVIEW

A malignant, sultry spellbinder of a serpent's brood, the lovely Lise and her two brothers, all living off of- and about to be cast off by- their stepmother. As her deliberate death presages doom for the two who will inherit her wealth, an elderly cousin and Lise's unloved child, -Kertesz, a guest, plays guardian angel, and while three others lose their lives, he is able to redeem himself and save the youngster. Ominous as anything.
