KIRKUS REVIEW

In the absence of our special Asey Mayo addict, we must confess that the rest of the staff doesn't quite fall in line, and we find the fun wearing a bit thin. The Banburys come to the Cape for the Summer, and Phineas sets the town on its feet with his generosity. Hostility is increasingly evident -- culminating in arsenic in the tarts he has given to the church fair. Asey Mayo to the rescue, and the Banburys are saved. Lots of salty trimmings, but little mystery and sparse doings.
