KIRKUS REVIEW

Off the financial pages to you, a top speed mystery of the driven men who make the cars. Although all the characters are heavy duty cardboard, the book is fueled by a glimpse of how money becomes capital and inter-corporation personnel power glide. When the executives of Michigan Motors get sprung after serving time for price rigging, the scandal starts springing fatally bloody leaks. The unlikely but likable sleuth is John Putnam Thatcher, a Wall St. banker who never loses his coolth, his cash or the conservative tiger in his tank.
