    1. Good story. It might take some time to catch the rhythm of the story. It is a story of an ex-paratrooper who looked forward to have a peaceful time in Paradise City. But when he got there, he is drawn into a lethal set-up where dumped corpses, smuggling operations, hired killers, over-ambitious cops and a nymphomaniac double-crosser called Nina tend to make his life HELL! The twist and turns are very unexpected and after reading the first chapter I was so impressed by the writing style and story [...]

    2. JHC is almost like a genre in his own right. Although the covers invariably include a scantily clad woman holding a revolver, the books are actually amazingly well written. He has a style that is incredibly gripping. Had he been around today I think he would have been in the same league as James Patterson.This is classic Hadley Chase and a rip-roaring adventure from start to finish.As pulp fiction goes, which this undoubtedly is, this is amongst the best in the genre. It won't be everyone's cup [...]

    3. JHC writes to be read and evokes an interest till the end. A fast fiction that goes with the pace, never bores one and is timeless. His every character in every novel depicts strength, beauty, skill, quaint and subtle all-in one fold apt to the flow of narration. The rhythm never breaks.

    4. It's to JCH's credit that he can keep the reader gripped despite an ordinary plot. Harry Mitchel, a 70's version of Jack Reacher, delivers few moments of interest to be considered on par with other JCH's leads and this is a character who should have seen more action. Ditto with Nina, who was hardly the volatile Nymphomaniac as described on the cover.The Hippie set-up helped create a taut eerie background but for me, it was the Paradise City Cops who saved the day.

    5. This is just another masterpiece from the maestro, edge of your seat, nail biting, adventure packed thriller about Harry Mitchell an ex army paratrooper who goes on vacation, hitch hiking and winds up as the fall guy for the brutal torture and murder of one man smuggling in cigars from Cuba

    6. A decent book to read while traveling. I liked the character description, but the first 30 to 40 pages in the book were just fillers. This is my first James Hadley Chase book.

    7. Typical trip Hammer Chase. Thought the ending was a bit too quick with easy escape for the protagonist but nevertheless enjoyed reading this one.

    8. Magnificent work of fiction. Hadley Chase at his brutal best, including mystery of why a man is tortured, with his foot held in a fire. Chase is so popular in Africa for decades

    9. My first James Hadley Chase , and yes it's quite a good leaf from the pulp fiction annals of the 60s and 70s !!! Glad I didn't judge the book by its sleazy cover , though !!
