KIRKUS REVIEW

Genuinely funny political satire here as American grain bound for Russia gets moored to Manhattan docks. New York's Sloan Guarantee Trust has been neatly bilked out of $985,000 by a carefully forged Russian bill of claim. It's John Thatcher's job to recover it as the hounds of international policy makers descend. Is something rotten in Moscow? Was it a subversive plot by the New Left? Zany and it will keep you guessing.
