Time Out says

A thriller which opens resonantly with a man being gunned down as he sits at the piano in a dark, deserted nightclub. But despite good performances, the presence of Horace McCoy, WR Burnett and Charles Bennett among the credited writers, and a potentially workable story - detective Mature sets out in pursuit of a girl who witnessed the murder, ostensibly to protect her from the Mob - this never really takes off. Mature is so nudgingly pointed up as the killer that it's painfully obvious he isn't, and the supposedly nail-biting climax among the treacherous mountain crevasses (shot in the Glacier National Park, Montana, with excessive attention to scenic grandeur) is absurdly hamfisted.
