ISLE OF PERIL by Alan Wade


Email this review


Poorly plotted, poorly written, poorly edited- and not worth the paper it is printed on. There isn't even a good bloody murder. The setting- an island in the Pacific off Monterey; the cast -- a hotel keeper who decides to sell off some plots; the buyers, including some gangsters determined to get rid of all the others; a young ladies' seminary, with some restive damsels who get involved with a photographer who specializes in nudes, a tough individual who farms whales; a curious poet, and so on. Not a credible creature in the lot- and the means used to eliminate them weren't drastic enough for my money.
