KIRKUS REVIEW

Elderly extrovert Myra Walling enjoys every minute of the crisis triggered by the convergence on her island of Twinkles, her diamond necklace, black sheep brother-in-law John Cranshaw (who is counting on her for capital) and two escaped cons (who expect to steal their own stake); but to lawyer-nephew Peter Gordon, no Flash, it's all a headache, aggravated when jolly Aunt Myra discloses that she substituted a paste imitation for the precious Twinkles. Diamonds Are Trouble (1967) wasn't much more substantial but at least it was more than an old lady showing her mettle.
