KIRKUS REVIEW

Feminine to flouncy adventure, this tells of Eve Gill's personal, picaresque championship of Jonathan Penrose whom she picks up while he is on the run as suspect in a murder. Chivalric, to the point of foolishness, Jonathan assumes the appearance of guilt in Charlotte Inwood's alleged murder of her husband and does not realize that she is shiding another lover. Eve, quickly suspicions of the lovely Charlotte, gets a job as her lady's mald, realizing that Charlotte and her lover will turn Jonathan over to the police when necessary, and although failing to disabuse Jonathan when she confronts him with their intentions, she does succeed in trapping Charlotte for the police. Contemporary, England- though there is little that seems contemporary in character, this is not up to stricter styles or standards in crime fiction.
