KIRKUS REVIEW

High life inhabited by the low life is the means by which Henry Pontrefoy Jackson, plans to establish himself inside the law, and his is an out of prince, Alexander de Galba. Jackson's combine consists of Davis Davis who is renouncing counterfeiting (he happened to lose his engraver); John Peroue, whose disbarment from the law does not prohibit his crooked proclivities; Count igor, whose humor gets so in drink; Freddle Holloway, who is a professional butler, provided with valuable perquisites as well as knowledge; and Pamela Frisby who loves Jackson, fairy tales and the misuse of the English language. Their quarry is wealthy Gilda Greystone holidaying in ; their buildup of Alex as her fourth husband is thorough; their re of the terrain is meticulous their ""Provident Development Foundation"" doesn't miss a mesh. It is Gilda's interest in South American Roberto, the (selfish) defence she gets from secretary Pratt and companion Muriel Laurier, and her own sense of self-protection that topsy turvies their plans and brings a new ending to the Foundation. This does not always keep up with its frivolous farce.
