Not the usual James Hadley chase treat as it entirely lacks suspense.Everything is crystal clear which makes it boring.Only saving grace are dialog which are presented in usual james style like "you are the filthiest creature who ever crawled out of stinging piece of meat".
I would not recommend it,its plain and boring.

Not the classic James piece I was hoping for. Enough said I guess.

Well what another ripsnorter from the maestro thriller writer about the daughter of a multi-millionaire who's husband suffers severe brain injuries in a car accident, while they're away for some rehabilitation, a prostitute is found brutally murdered..... a real beauty for all JHC fanatics.......

A typical (and good) Chase thriller. Gripping and exciting from start to finish. Never a dull moment.
The ending was quite disappointing but not a bad read.
