Review Text

The eighth adventure for Dr. Jason Love, who used to remind everyone of James Bond and now calls up images of Indiana Jones. Here, Parkington - the rep for the Midland Widows Insurance Co. - convinces Love to appraise an immaculate, one-of-a-kind 1935 Cord automobile (Love's passion), which is currently garaged in Islamabad, Pakistan. A beauty, Love declares at first sight, but hardly worth the million pounds its owner, gorgeous widow Stevie Kahn, is asking for it - even if she does want the money to buy medical supplies for her Peshawar clinic. Soon, everyone is after Love and the luscious Stevie and the Cord - with the breathless saga encompassing Russian geologists in Afghanistan: the mysteriously DOA Mr. Glover; Ahmed (former Kabul University linguist who has memorized certain map coordinates); the irascible "Go-Between,' and a body that froze in a crevasse back in the 1600's. Many fraught-with-peril escapades later, Love returns to England; an age-old secret is rebuffed; and Stevie learns that her husband may still be alive. Better yet, Love is given the Cord as partial payment for a job well done. Dashingly preposterous, with lively glimpses of Afghanistan/Pakistan and super-hero spies. Told with great gusto and real tale-teller talent. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
