Review Text

Timid Arthur Brownlow murdered his wife while he was dressed as the tigerish Major Mellon. His behavior always altered with his costumes and his assumed identities. It was a successful murder, but when a case of accidental death resulted in enough circumstantial evidence to convict him, there wasn't enough left of Brownlow for the police to bring to court... The escape-into-madness story line is familiar, but handled with entertaining assurance for the pleasure of Symons' certain audience. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
