THE DARK ROAD
By Clifford Knight
Author of Death of a Big Shot, The Yellow Cat, etc.
This is truly that different story of murder; the story of a distraught mind driven by an urge to kill.
Martin Woodruff is young, he is charming, but — a psychiatrist foresees trouble for him. An orphan, reared in luxury by his aunt whose own son was destined to inherit the family money, Martin grew to hate his cousin. The two boys were near the same age, they bore a striking resemblance to each other and these facts gave the day-dreaming Martin one of his most spectacular ideas. When the stakes are roughly a million and a half dollars, ideas must be spectacular, and Martin is not the boy to stint on anything.
Estelline Maranon, a very beautiful and somewhat promiscuous young woman, is too close to Martin for her own good, while Kay Jacobs, whom Martin really loves, knows Martin too well for his.
Very carefully worked out, The Dark Road is an excellent story of murder among the well placed, told with economy and precision. Clifford Knight has long been highly rated among the writers in this field and The Dark Road is s best and most thoroughly unusual to date.
