Oct 11, 2013 Johnny Morgan rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
Fantastic to have a new edition of this long out of print novel. Scarily prescient, wholly contemporary it could just as easily be written this year instead of 1965. It should be required reading for all opponents of Obamacare. As one reviewer put it, this is 'like Raymond Chandler, like some Norman Mailer; it's not, as so many good thrillers are today, angling for a TV series or a film. Fertig is a book'.
