KIRKUS REVIEW

Circus background for a two ringed murder which involves the Navy's Lt. Peter Duluth, whose wife Irish won't leave trouble alone and who sends him to a Turkish bath where he loses his uniform, used against him to commit two killings. Peter, who only wants Iris, is forced instead to sleuth the murders, connected with a boarded man, a cant of ""red roses...white roses"", and a crime in the past exacting revenge in the present. Off to a skittish start, this doesn't quite hold up or together, but is often cute.
