In this precurser to "Rim of the Pit," Talbot came up with a twist to the impossible murder scenario, and used a setting familiar in the genre: an isolated island. But when the police arrive the day after the murder, the victim's corpse is in an advanced state of decay -- after all the curse was "Od ROT you."

A great example of the Golden Age impossible murder genre. What a shame Talbot didn't keep writing Rogan Kincaid mysteries.
