Another excellent Fletcher mystery. If you are a fan of British crime / mystery and have never read Fletcher, you owe it to yourself to give him a try.
The heiress of a mysterious and missing father is relentlessly pursued by an international criminal organization. She is protected by her father's faithful and capable butler, and a local newspaper reporter (the romantic interest). The book reads like old-time serialized cliffhanger pulp spliced together to make a novel - but in a good way. I found the book entertaining and good pulpy fun - and yes, someone does actually get tied to the railroad tracks.
This is a well written blend of sci-fi and crime genres. I found the book entertaining - good plot, interesting characters, and plenty of action.
This is a very good mystery novel with intricate plot and strong characters - some of them quite nasty. The book thoroughly captured my attention.
