Very short story with some surprise humor thrown in. Great fun, 10 minute read.

Good Villain! But even better the female lead in the novel is not one of Wallace's typical shrinking violets.

A combination of mystery, exotic adventure locals - and a bit of crazy stalker thrown in.

There are times when the actions of some of the characters had me saying "huh?". But Wallace at least tells you what their motivation was at the end.

The closing scene between the two love interests was a delight to read.

A fun, little gem of a story!

I thought that I had predicted the ending, but I was surprised at the final twist at the end. The heroes are appropriately manly, the distressed damsel appropriately helpless, and the villains appropriately evil!

This was a great read!

Keep in mind that the gender roles are typical of the time period in which it was written, and you'll have a wonderful time with this adventure romp. I kept "turning" pages, wondering what our villain would have up her sleeve next.

The ending was a little weak - it seems as though Wallace might have been setting up for a sequel.
