KIRKUS REVIEW

Ashe is back down under again. This time it's Australian sheep-shearing country and a story so preposterous that even bush babies would laugh. Harold Fenton, rancher...individualist and lovely cousin Bobie accidentally discover the ""Big Four"" (World's Most Wanted criminals) doing something dastardly near Fenton's property. They escape after Fenton kills a fifth man (who turns out to have been an undercover policeman). Later, working in conjunction with the ""Crime Haters"" (international vigilantes composed of police), they set a trap using Bobie as bait (one of the Big Four's a sadist). Naturally everything almost goes wrong. Unlikely, unlikable.
