Review by

Another early Crichton published under his John Lang pseudonym. As usual, it's vaguely entertaining and yet utterly implausible. He starts with a decent noir framework but then piles on a ridiculous number of plot twists that leave me wanting something simpler. The prologue and epilogue may have been added by him when Hard Case reissued this in 2006.

Review by

Absolute HCC thriller with bare plot and characters, but fun to spend a day or so reading.
