KIRKUS REVIEW

A sequel to last year's loser, Good Luck, Mister Cain, in which small-time London crook Harry Grant tricked hired gun Cain out of 10,000 quid and hoofed it to the States. Now Harry's back, lured by the phony promise of a big caper, and Cain's message--via a crooked copper--is pay up in ten days or else. Trying to get the necessary lolly gets narrator Harry involved with double-crossing spies, missing microfilm, a soon-dead gangster named Beau Cohen, and a high-class stripper--all of it conveyed in hyper limey slang so thick you'll need a translator. Unless, of course, you take a hint and avoid it entirely.
