AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'SELDOM has the reader been offered more suspects from which to make a selection, but three sisters are thrust forward as those most likely to have been connected with the shooting of the manager of their estate. Gask differs somewhat from the usual writer of thrillers in that the perpetrator is eventually found to be one of the chief suspects. Most others usually keep him or her pretty well concealed. Our old friend, Gilbert Larose, now married and in retirement, is called in to watch the interests of the sisters, and quickly guesses who killed the manager. However, so skilfully does he gain the reader's sympathy for the criminal that he is glad that justice, not the law, triumphs.'


'Justifiable Crime', The Mail, 12 February 1938, p.28.
