THERE are two points to note ' about Mr, Herbert Adams's new story. The first is that it is a detective story with a golfing background, and that, as readers of The Body in the Bunker will remember, is Mr. Adams's speciality. The second point is that it is a murder story from a new angle. The reader sees the deed done. The reader sees each cunning step that is to make it appear an unquestionable suicide. But does the reoder see the murderer's one mistake ? Inspector Ripley did not—and he was a smart man. But Robert Bennion did. Yet who among the light-hearted golfers on the Buriesford links would kill Basil Shelton, a harmless newcomer seeking rest and quiet in peaceful Devon ? Little by little the method is revealed, but—who did it ?
