KIRKUS REVIEW

Court scenes which pin point the technicalities of the English legal system and a barrister's routine are part of the picture of Dick Rayne's attempt to prove his client innocent of murder. Taking this ""poor prisoner's case"" marks a turning point, for Dick is bitter at the dead end he has reached and working for Lingley Dixon's freedom offers him the chance to accomplish something real. So that when Dixon is declared guilty, Dick continues to try to find the evidence he so desperately wants- in the backtracking on all who have testified, on others who have been overlooked, and is able to make the case stick on the true criminal. A terrific i-dotting job this is, an exemplary English concoction.
