THEY WERE READY TO SEND BRAD DOLAN ON A LITTLE TRIP—TO THE BOTTOM OF THE CARIBBEAN!
“A hell-for-leather, sometimes bawdy yarn, tough as a bullhide, as violent as a Caribbean typhoon.” —Long Beach Independent
“Literate, hard-paced violence ... Dolan is believably tough, mentally as well as physically.” —Brett Halliday, creator of Mike Shayne
The trouble started when a woman swung through the open door of the waterfront cantina and asked the man sitting there if he was Brad Dolan. Her hair was tawny blonde; her eyes the color of the Gulf Stream; she was put together in all the right ways. She offered Brad a thousand dollars to take her to Miami on his boat, no questions asked.
Who’d turn down an offer like that? Brad was ready by sundown.
But Brad had the woman figured wrong.
Just how wrong he only realized when he felt a cold steel gun butt crashing into his skull and heard the tawny-haired dame say, “I’m sorry to do this, Dolan.”
Then he felt himself being pitched over the side, into the black water, miles from shore....
“A happy combination of tough, yet literate, Mr. Fuller’s prose is terse and salty. You feel that you are there, riding high on the Caribbean, with an armful of romance, fighting and parrying with a lissome charmer with tawny hair and black toreador trousers. Even Mozart’s Magic Flute, playing subdued in the background, can’t dispel the aura of danger which clothes her. Worth its price.” —Buffalo Evening News
