AN Elizabeth Ferrars novel is always particularly satisfying and stimulating. This clever writer is not primarily concerned with presenting the reader with a pretty problem, although her plot is ingeniously worked out. She is more interested in the "why and wherefore " than the " how." To-day so many seemingly ordinary people have been unbalanced by war and its aftermath and have lost their normal standards of behaviour. They have become unstable, losing all feeling of security. From their sick minds spring strange fantasies and irresistible desires, sometimes even the desire to kill. It is of such people that Miss Ferrars writes, plumbing their minds with an uncanny precision that lifts her story to heights far above the ordinary murder mystery.
