Take a beautiful woman - no, take two or even three beautiful women, take some money, throw in a con man and a hustler or two, even a rich and respected publisher and a bank v.p. won't hurt. Add people's natural avariciousness, a couple of gruesome murders and sex-crimes, and mix well with Peter Chambers.
The result: one of the most intriguing, fast-moving, exciting suspense thrillers of the year - all in the inimitable Henry Kane manner.
This is one you won't ever forget.
