KIRKUS REVIEW

The Cain derivative, for the story of a compulsive, prohibitive and high propulsion passion, this tells of Roy Higgins, a Maine back country boy (who had wised up on the angles during the war), Allen White, an older New York lawyer who had staked Roy to a fishing camp, and Linda, White's bride, a breathtakingly beautiful bitch. As the situation tightens under White's sullen suspicion, Roy shoots twice to kill- when he needed to have only shot once, and in the desperate, driven manhunt which follows, gets the answer to Linda's love for him when he gives her a chance to die with him, or alone... The love which is only lust, a heel, and a tramp- who whip up quite a bit of excitement between them.
