From the cover: “This is in a sense a murder story turned inside out; the question, left unanswered to the very end, is not the identity of the murderer, but whether he will hang. The tension mounts in a long and brilliantly-presented trial scene, with the weight of the evidence swaying now to one side, now to the other, as different aspects of the truth are brought to light, suppressed, and distorted by witnesses and counsel. Mr. Grierson’s characters come boldly to life, and the cut and thrust of the dialogue, whether across the dining table or in court, is both exciting and revealing.
