KIRKUS REVIEW

Bill Harding, still susceptible to Angelica, his first wife, but now well married to Betsy, his second, is compromised maritally- and criminally- when Angelica's latest lover- most recently seen with Betsy's sister Daphne- is murdered, and Bill is forced to give Daphne her alibi- while trying to protect Betsy from the fact that Angelica was with him. With the knowledge that Angelica is the chief object of Lt. Trant's deadly quiet investigation, he knows that he must destroy his own life with Betsy- to save Angelica's- and finds that his own conscience is the most demanding obligation of all. Svelte.
