Critic Reviews for The Lost Man

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

The emphasis is on the suspense story -- and we will, I suppose, have to settle for being grateful that it is wrapped in contemporary terms.

It is too bad that so vital and important a subject is given so lax and diffuse a treatment.
