Very enjoyable second novel featuring Inspector Anders, now working for Interpol. Sadly, Marshall Browne's books are hard to find, so I'm not too hopeful I'll be able to read the third book in this series, and I've heard he was working on the fourth when he died unexpectedly in 2014.

Inspector Anders, Interpol senior inspector, was introduced in The Wooden Leg of Inspector Anders, where he cleverly solved a situation involving the Italian Mafia. World weary, introspective, an amputee who lost a leg as a result of a bombing earlier in his career, Anders is once again involved in a highly complex case which originates in Frankfurt, Germany. A drug company is in merger talks, and their joint boards are meeting to finalize the arrangements. Somehow, a bomb has been planted in th ...more

The sequel to the Wooden Leg of Inspector Anders. This time, Anders is battling an international terrorist organisation -- or is he? While not quite as credible as the previous tale (which actually wasn't that credible either, now that I think about it), this is still an engaging read from beginning to end. Oct 2001

Inspector Anders is working for Interpol to solve a series of violent terrorist acts against big companies throughout Europe. He is a flawed and troubled character, whose personal characteristics and idiosycrasies help him in some way to find out the truth.

This Aussie writer is not as famous as he should be for his mysteries. Inspector Anders, an Italian, works for Interpol and solves some difficult murders, flitting around Europe with his trusty underling.

I would give this 4 stars except that I just didn't believe the villain's skill set was credible. If you are willing to suspend disbelief, then this is an excellent read.

Browne was an international banker - he racked up 37 years with NAB - and one of his forebears was a founder of Australia's first bank. But the former paratrooper who once hankered for a spell in the French foreign legion loved writing and had three books published in Britain in the early '80s when writing was still ''an occasional Sunday activity''. Then came a couple of historical novels about M ...more
