Synopsis from Murder Cancels All Debts
An amoral woman can incur debts of hatred and revenge as well as money, and while murder may cancel all of these, a murderer still has to reckon with justice. M. V. Heberden, whose reputation was first based on fast, hard-boiled stories, has turned to this study of a small group of people under the strain of suspicion and has mixed suspense and fine characterization into this psychological pot purri. Celeste Mather was a complete egoist and refused to believe that the rules of give, and take could apply lo her. Mhr. only took other peoples husbands, other people's money, even her own husband's integrity. When she was found shot there was every reason to believe that her husband had finally exacted payment for the ruin she had made of his life. A proper police, investigation iras made, impossible by a flood that isolated the group of people which had had most to do with Celeste, but a naval officer, determined to see justice done, set the stage for a showdown in which courage of two kinds was the deciding factor.
