KIRKUS REVIEW

This is the last Philo Vance mystery written before the author's death, and while not superspecial, it is a fast moving, compact job, almost telegraphic in method. Philo Vance sees what makes the wheels go round in an emerald robbery and two murders on a millionaire's estate in upper New York. There's a special preface with a biographical sketch of S. S. Van Dine, and his famous ""Rules for Detective Story Writers.
