KIRKUS REVIEW

After some Death in the Desert (1977), Col. Blair is back at sea, this time navigating a schooner-rig around the Caribbean isle of ""Nueva,"" where a Chinese Prime Minister (Nueva is multi-racial) is doing something awful and implausible with electronically induced earthquakes and the Chinese Communists. Blair's crew consists of a senior citizen aristocrat who owns half the island and an American mathematician whose ex-husband is the engineer for the evildoing. In Anderson's sure and stolid hands, they make an engaging threesome for sailing, food-gathering, cave-exploring, and earthquake-escaping, but most readers will wish that these invigorating activities could have been occasioned by a slightly more credible set of villainous circumstances.
