KIRKUS REVIEW

Another adventure from Alan Caillou spiked with violence and spiced with sex is easy enough to down although familiarity deprives it of some of its punch. 35-year-old oil man Roger Sequoyah makes his appearance on command aboard Maxwell Christie's boat--Christie wants him for a Job in the Middle East, Orassia to be exact. The boat comes equipped With Christie's nympho daughter Candia, who is playing a deadly (suicidal) game trying to elicit a show of concern from her father. Christie is more .interested in the Kandlt Oras, the great religio pornographic book of Orassia--in fact he steals it, and thus provides the gambit whereby Prince Hafik can be returned to his people a hero in death after the Shah is overthrown by rebels. These are led by General Fali but masterminded by the woman Roger loves, formidable and beautiful Simone Caffa. Oklahoma is forgotten as he debarks at Arkan with her at the heart of his destiny. Standard masculine fare.
