KIRKUS REVIEW

McCormick's quizzical executive-headhunter John Waltz (RÉsumÉ for Murder) now busybodies his way through a series of murders while he vacations in a Club Med-type resort in Tahiti. Waltz's Australian roommate Dr. Byron Summerwell is the first corpse--apparently murdered for a secret drug formula he was about to sell to a group of French Canadian separatist fanatics. But one of those very same fanatics is the next target, with several innocently involved victims to follow. So Waltz, between half-hearted romances with superwoman Gillian Bourne and gorgeous Belgian med student Marianne, devotes himself to clumsily tracking the murderer. . . landing in jail for his trouble and nearly becoming the assassin's umpteenth murderee. A horde of determinedly eccentric guests and natives, much frantic action, lots of tedious talk, and a plot you'll never believe--all adding up to disappointing, uneven entertainment, occasionally redeemed by Waltz's amusingly jaundiced view of everything.
