A book for the readers who like psychological murder studies -- Harriet, Beyond the Fact, Bastard Verdict. Not for the straight mystery fan. A penetrating and unsentimental study of a woman whose desire, first for financial and then for romantic security, brings destruction on these who stand in her way. Dispassionate, clear cut, grim portrait of a selfish woman, against a background of South Africa, which Mrs. Millin knows intimately. Characterize as the horror of the commonplace. Should have sale as a novel, as well as to the other market.
