'The narrative opens with the deceptive simplicity of a melodrama.  The Mayor of a provincial village is shot by a girl of twenty-four, who is arrested, charged and tried for premeditated murder.  The trial develops into an indictment of a dead man and of the living who, long ago, had joined him in a conspiracy of silence.  Its climax is a classic exposition of the dilemma of the law and of the servants of the law - whether their function is to maintain public order or to administer moral justice.'
