KIRKUS REVIEW

Another of Neely's authentically low-minded thrillers in occasionally ""empurpled"" prose, this time about Harry Falcon whose wife Kate has been institutionalized for some time. She emerges to be raped while all around other similar offenses against the persons of younger women are taking place. Only after the murder of Gloria, Harry's mistress, do the police find out by methods of typing semen, exactly as you can blood--A, B, AB and O--who the real rapist is (you might have guessed), although there's still one more surprise. A in terms of avid shock, O minus in terms of taste.
