Review Text

Douglas King- with dreams of glory- at any rate power- must forfeit his chance to become top man of a shoe company when he must use the cash, on hand for this deal, to ransom the son of his chauffeur, kidnapped- by mistake- in lieu of his own son.

Steve Carella of the 87th Precinct is again very much on the job and it is a cold blooded crime synchronized with hot action and explicit police procedure. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
