THE SANTA FE JAIL by Lars Jakobsen
CHILDREN'S
Released: Sept. 1, 2012

"Dedicated spy-thriller and sci-fi fans would probably be able to fill in the blanks, but it's not worth the effort. (historical notes on rain forests, Nazi plunder and other related topics, with period images, appended) (Graphic science fiction. 10-12)"
