At the start of Knopf’s highly inventive third mystery featuring market researcher Arthur Cathcart, armed men seize Cathcart and girlfriend Natsumi Fitzgerald from their sailboat and threaten them with torture unless they reveal the location of a missing billion dollars. Throughout, Cathcart proves as nimble on his feet as he is quick witted.
This is the third in the series, after “Dead Anyway” and “Cries of the Lost.” It is thoroughly entertaining and every bit as good as the ones that preceded it and, like those, is highly recommended.
The two books I have read are fascinating entries, and the characters are involved in billion dollar intrigue and danger. The pace is fast, and writing smooth, keeping the reader turning the pages. Highly recommended.
