KIRKUS REVIEW

The death of Janice Morel, professional come-on-girl, leads Detective Birge, with too much heart and conscience for his calling, into a traffic in flesh, narcotics, extortion. An addict and her blind husband, a wife-killer and the past he cannot obliterate, a pimp and a mobster provide a gallery of criminal characters, but Birge, in the confession he extracts, finds a source for pity as well as punishment... Exciting and effective.
