KIRKUS REVIEW

A story of the underworld of a small city in the far south, characterized by a certain bitter humor and something of the Caldwell type of realism. The setting revolves around a jail with the central character Uncle Billy, the warden, who is a rather appealing character, and who determines to run down the truth back of a murder and a suicide. Not so hard-boiled as the publishers suggest -- so don't limit the market to that field. A first novel of promise, but not a book for the general reader of too conservative taste.
