The strangling of a wealthy woman at an opulent Andirondack estate brings Lt. Valcour to investigate. He knows immediately who committed the crime, but can he prove it?
"Good yarn. Valcour has a hard time getting evidence against a peculiarly successful criminal, though he spots the guilty one at the start." -- Kirkus
"Designedly transparent as mystery, but suspense keeps up to concert pitch all the way." -- The Saturday Review
