Poor Albert Campion has his first leave in four years and gets sucked into an investigation of murder / art looting. I was pleased to see that for once the American character wasn't a backwoods yokel or a vulgar buffoon.

I found Amanda Fitton supremely annoying in Sweet Danger, so I was surprisingly moved by the ending.
