KIRKUS REVIEW

Jim Foster, manager of a California gambling casino, is hustled out of the state to Mexico to start a new enterprise. Once there, he finds that just about anything will play; in the murder of a Don Carlos; the aggressive allure of Moraima; the strange success of her lover-Numerescue- who keeps taking- and breaking the bank; and finally his affiliation with a brace of undercover Communists..... A deck loaded with activity rather than excitement.
