The stake in the game by Evelyn Berckman( Book )

3 editions published between 1971 and 1973 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In between period entertainments, Evelyn Berckman writes a kind of interpersonal suspense story where destruction is accomplished without violence. Some are better than others. (This is one of the others since her main thesis -- a variant of the "Oh what a tangled web": once having lied, one is "tethered" to the stake) -- is never quite clinched. Heather, hesitant Heather, dismissed and excluded by her husband, first lies to cover for her sister's adultery. From then on she is in and out of another kind of mess involving her son and her au pair girl and there are successive revelations and reverses. More womanly than feminine but managing a certain insight to spoonfeed the story. (Kirkus Reviews, February 1, 1972)
