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.
