Ex-Scotland yard cop James Reed is pulled out of his comfortable life as a "Mailbu beach bum" to help a Hollywood starlet's daughter who is involved a $2 million drug heist.
This droll, tongue-in-cheek thriller has its charms, notably Smith’s deadpan wit and his mostly solid moral compass. Espionage fans should find this a pleasant diversion.
Breathlessly paced, wickedly funny, with a naughty, but hilarious climax.
Sangster's light-hearted approach gives the novel sprightly animation. The startling twist in the very last sentence is as ironic as it is unexpected.
Humorous, exciting, and unpredictable. A well-written adventure.
