KIRKUS REVIEW

A sequel to A Rough Shoot (page 133), for a parallel public, and again an epi of pursuit in which Roger Taine counters fascist-communist activity when he serves as a contact for the C.I.D. to Pink, a disappointed romantic with a disreputable record. Assisting at Pink's raid of a Bournemouth house and his attempt to bag- as evidence-in an insubstantial story- some poisonous cattle ticks, Taine becomes a vulnerable target for the enemy when his children are kidnapped. But in a chase, by land and by sea, they conclude their research effectively, recover the youngsters, dispose of their opponents.... A brush with danger which is carried off with bluff enthusiasm and a highhanded aplomb.
