A KIND OF TREASON

The author is something of an expert on Communism in the Far East and his tendency toward long passages of essentially polemical dialogue sags the suspense inherent in this formula espionage/romance. Gerry Mallory is a tired, middleaged journalist lucred into combining his magazine assignment with a little spying for our side in Saigon where the liquor is quick, the opium smoke thick and the enervating decadence supremely scrutable. His press card takes him to the centers of military and political loose talk and his hormones lead him to an ego building native pussy cat with whom he can lead another pair of lives. Predictable Viet Nam-melodram.
