Review Text

A madrigal is a structured dramatic song that can go on far too long. That definition of the title word describes what's wrong with this book, a sparkless spoof of the Fleming/Spillane school of espionage entertainment. The awful threat at the end of the book is that Boysie Oakes (ex-British intelligence agent, all gonads, no brains nor guts) his slimy ex-boss and Griffin (their Cockney liquidator) will return in yet another about the firm they founded after the government pruned away their Special Branch.
