Ernst Henke boarded the uptown A train, smiling to himself with approval. Yes, these were the right people, a good mix. No one noticed the package he left in the subway. But they noticed the car full of bodies of over a hundred people--and the letter warning New York City that this was just the beginning.

(Updated review) The golden age of the paperback thriller is the 1970s and Walter Wager was one of my favorite thriller author. When he was on top, he was simply audacious; in a very big way. Many of his works became big motion pictures; few people realize it but it was his material which became the script for 'Die Hard'. In short, he is no slouch.

Another freebee. Luckee!
