Shelley Smith    

SHELLEY SMITH can certainly *J write a crime story that can truthfully be described as enthralling. Following that outstanding success This is tfcc i-'.ouss comes this quite different type of story Come and Be Killed,' which is in essence a psychological study of a murderess. There is nothing of the orthodox mystery in the story and consequently no tiresome red herrings. A novel such as this needs unusual talent, as it depends mainly on its human interest, and in our opinion the author has succeeded brilliantly for it grips the reader from first to last.
