KIRKUS REVIEW

These patently, potently malevolent short stories show Mr. Ellin at the top of his form. He uses such unremarkable places and people and situations so much within the realms of possibility that his end effects are always startling. The title story deals with a very business-like way of removing unwanted relatives and the final story, ""The Question,"" concerns an issue an electrocutioner can no longer avoid. Both can easily take their places next to the author's famous ""The Specialty of the House.
