what point of view is used in this novel?
Detective stories are based upon the law of improbabilities. To achieve its purpose of shocking readers, every detective story must have, if not a new trick, at least a new combination of old ones. Author Fisher uses two old ones: reanimation and double dual identity. His readers may be able to control their jitters when someone who looks a great deal like poor old Frimbo suddenly enters the proceedings, alive, hearty and verbose. They will be amazed at what reappearing Frimbo has to say about death-rites in the African tribe of which he is king; at what he keeps in the bottles in his medicine chest: at who it was that tried to whack him on the head with a greasy human leg-bone.
