    1. Oh, this one is bad. It begins well enough, but the story soon becomes preposterous, then becomes more preposterous until long before the repetitive (if you have read others in this series) end of the book, the story is utterly preposterous. Creasey was never much of a stylist, so there is little to recommend this one. I would not have finished were I not stuck in a hospital with nothing else to read. It is that bad.


    2. Another fast-paced novel of British counter-intelligence from John Creasey. Familiar series characters, subversive government plots, car chases and a mysterious drug angle intertwine in this novel.
