Review Text

A very cool, accomplished, sophisticated variant on the manhunt theme (to which G.B. seems to have a monopoly). It may just catch on. Less of a story than Above Suspicion, but its got an edge on this through its very fine, cynical, impudent wit. The hero, euphemistically speaking, is a journalist of sardonic sangfroid, who murders his mistress, only to find that she was a valuable spy in a secret organization. The balance of the book is the cat and rat chase, with unscrupulous Thane devising some neat situations of foil and counterfoil. Clever-clever, urbane, and highly suspenseful withal. For your fastidious intrigue market. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
