THis was amongst a number of old Collins Crime Club books from the 40s and 50s which I picked up recently in a second hand shop - the ones with a sinister silhouette of a figure holding a gun. Not a bad 'light' read and also an interesting feel of the age it was written in.

Begins very well and then turns rather daft... how can a so-called journalis behave with such utter naivety???

back in the day when things were a little more gentle......I had big doubts about this book. Written in 1960 I thought it wouldn't punch hard enough to keep my attention. In fact it isn't a heavy puncher. It isn't a graphic thriller which is full of blood and guts, the sort I usually like. No gore but yet well written and a gentle story that kept me interested from start to finish.
