John Payne, a thorough cad, uses and then kills a young girl to gain access to a jewelry establishment which will enable him to give his wife-and family- a better life. Inspector Roger West investigates, brings the wrong man to book, and is assisted- at the close- by one of his sons.... One of the most accomplished in this series which combines action and precision to good effect. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
