At first, i was so confused because i didnt understand what was happening. I abandoned for a long time because i felt like i was losing interest in it. But finally picked it up and by the pages, things were falling into pieces and got it. Great book, amazing plot twist but the beginning is a bit dull.

This is a crime caper novel, a sub-genre in which I haven't found interest. But this one turns out to be an exceptional crime thriller stuffed with non-stop suspense and a cast of fresh and exciting characters. Odd, yes? Because...It was first published in 1975. I'm guessing this is what Harry was talking about when he said the villains have to be smart, intelligent and formidable. Clever fellow, that Harry. Desmond Lowden, too.

And double odd in a good way, the 'primitive' electronics of the 70

Period 1970's. Wonderful tension. Brilliant individual characters, both good and vile. A splendid caper with an unexpected ending.
