Todd Mason

I've read a bit of Armstrong, but not this one...a cross between Woolrich and Jackson is high praise...wry despair? And did Tracy's interest help remind you of MAD x 4?

BV Lawson

Good points, Todd! Might be a parallel there, for sure. Makes me want to call up MADx4 and watch it again. ;-)

Elgin Bleecker

A fine review. I’ve got to find this one. You got me with: difficult to classify; and, comic suspense. Thanks!

BV Lawson

Mysterious Press reprinted the book in 2012, Elgin - which is fortunate, because it was a little hard to find until then.
