Review by Hans J. Wollstein

Children be warned, Eddie Nugent's pet dog is poisoned and dies an agonizing death in this crime thriller. That, however, is the only departure from the typical 1930s whodunit. That and the fact that the murderer is easily detected and that Syd Saylor manages to get through a seemingly endless monologue without a stutter. In other words, consider yourself warned.
