A tautly written and exciting yarn published when Yates was at the height of his powers, this is a real potboiler of the very best kind - tension, cliffhangers, wit and pace. Both a thriller and a humorous romance, the book draws heavily on the author's own (somewhat bitter) experiences. It gives an insight into Yates' rather scabrous views - and is a great read.
