Way lamer than I ever imagined a pulp could be with a cover like that. Writing was lifeless, characters were emotional ciphers, the twist was idiotic. Blah, I say.

Now that I'm both on a keyboard and remembered the thing I was going to say that I've forgotten repeatedly since I originally posted my review, I would recommend Dorothy Salisbury's A Gentle Murderer way and above this one. It actually delivers on the psychological front and doesn't have a lame bait and switch at the end.

Dated and a little simple-minded. Vance has written some pretty good murder mysteries, both in contemporary fiction as well as in science fiction, but this isn't one of his best. He's always had a bit of trouble finding his way into the female psyche and that's a little too apparent here. The plot isn't a disaster, but it's not without holes, either. At bottom, it's an uninspired genre exercise. For completists only.
