KIRKUS REVIEW

Superior cloak and dagger, this follows the trail of quiet, studious 19-year-old Quinn Anders as he is taken on by an independent under-cover outfit, on the Free World's side, and sent to find a valuable set of Belgian statuettes whose large purchase price could be used by the Russians. As carefully and excitingly planned as the operation itself, the book is suspense all the way. First Quinn, whose father was an historical military expert, pays a visit that his mysteriously killed brother had suggested to van Norrey's, a New York jewel dealer who in turn tells him of the collection his brother was after. Under the pretext of finishing a book of his father's, Quinn goes to Holland, there makes his contacts and becomes embroiled in gripping adventure that stretches its tentacles clear to China and the Gobi desert. Spell-binding and as adept as Andre Norton's more familiar science fiction.
