KIRKUS REVIEW

Report repeated from the March 15th bulletin, when scheduled for 1959 publication, as follows: ""Robert Kintyre was a complete amateur in this sleuthing business but the judo he had learned under private detective Yamamura's tutelage stood him in good stead when he became involved in seeking the solution in a brutal murder of a young professor associate, Bruce Lombardi, a gifted Italian-American. Kintyre's own past rose to haunt him, now blocking, now aiding him in tracing down an intricate mesh of clues. Bruce's innocence in an international gangster-black market affair came from the naive release of too much information, and led to violence, two murders, a kidnapping and the delayed solution. The setting- San Francisco's Bay area.
