KIRKUS REVIEW

Some haphazard homicide features vigilant observation by Webster, a Negro gentleman's gentleman, who works by the day for the tenants of Mortimer Rutherford, a pyrophobe, found burned to death in his fireproofed apartment. Rutherford's estate and a cousin who will inherit, an empty cleaning fluid bottle and the substitution of a non-fire resistant chair, a crooked picture racket and drug addiction, all this keeps Webster on his toes (and under the beds) until he makes his summation to the police. Flippant.
