"...More than a thriller. It is not only a whodunit; it is a whydunit. It digs below the surface, down to the bedrock of character, motive and what makes human beings act as they do. It ranges from Santa Anita race track to the exclusive Westchester community, north of New York, and uncovers one of the slickest holdup rackets on record. It explores the overpowering egotism of the criminal mind and the lengths to which a gently bred girl, in love, will go to hold her man..."

"Lina Inness was one of the richest women in America, the last person to be the victim of a brutal, premeditated murder. The whole country was shocked by the news that she had been found slumped over her desk, her throat slashed. The press and public opinion nominated her stepson Ronnie Meredith for the role of killer. He had the motive and the opportunity. Most damning of all, the bloodstained handkerchief clenched in Lina's hand had his name embroidered across one corner. Although Adam, Lina's psychiatrist husband, had his own reasons for doubting Ronnie's alibi, he was one of the few who thought the boy was innocent. There were others who could have killed Lina. Allen Penryhn, for instance, a cousin of Lina's first husband, who would inherit a fabulous fortune with Ronnie and Lina out of the way. Or Rigo Ojeda, the sadistic manager of Lina's racing stable who hated his employer. Rigo's frightened young wife told Adam why her husband might also fear Lina. Adam needs more than theories to save Ronnie; he has to have facts. But even he is totally unprepared for the grim surprise the facts disclose."
