The long-lost fourth book in Jimmy Sangster's "James Reed" series. Reed is trapped in a nightmare of sex, blackmail and murder... to get out, he must go to New York...and worm his way into the rotton core of the Big Apple.
James Reed is falsely accused of rape, chased by killers, and hired by a billionaire being blackmailed into marriage. And that's only the beginning of Reed's troubles in the second book in the series.
Self-styled beach bum James Reed agrees to protect a wealthy recluse recovering from an undisclosed illness...a job that turns into a nightmare of blackmail, drug dealing, and murder. Third book in the series.
Excellently plotted and paced, this adventure offers the satisfaction of a hard-boiled L.A. detective story overlaid with the nuances of a British mystery. Sangster constructs an intricate problem and lets his intelligent, complex hero loose to solve it.
More action-thriller than mystery, the action, from hand-to-hand combat to nautical chases, is steady.
