KIRKUS REVIEW

The author of a near, contemporary classic, Verdict Of Twelve, with another originally presented study in crime as the murder of an English suburbanite, a prominent townsman, calls up the past histories of fellow travelers in a train compartment. A chemist victimized by blackmail, a cobbler ruined by an air raid, a refugee who had known much previous drama, and a young editor -- lover of the dead man's wife, implicated in a strange case. Discerning detail and design; does not surpass the first.
