Reviews

McBain throws in switchback plot twists and false leads like the consummate pro he is and ALICE IN JEOPARDY is a terrific page-turner
TRIBUNE
McBain back on zestful, inventive and utterly compulsive form ... so topical that it practically sprints from the page
LITERARY REVIEW
McBain is a perennial cause for rejoicing
THE TIMES
Brilliant stuff ... McBain's genius lies in his uncanny dialogue, his intelligent characters, clever plots and the way he can portray the human side of law agency procedures

He's right at the top of the premier league of crime fiction
