HELL GATE by James Dawson


Email this review


Hell Gate is an unintentionally modest first spy-suspense-sex novel featuring in addition to a Gallic lovely who mumbles Germanic proverbs, a ""nullifier"" capable of neutralizing all electronic and electrical activity in a given area. The girl is spoken for but the nullifier is not and the Big Question is who will ""get it"" in either sense of the term. Inevitably it may be the reader, since so much of this is stereotyped--even the sex scenes are as tedious for the spectator as they seem to be for the participants. Nonetheless, there are occasional indications that Mr. Dawson could write better and should not be altogether written off.
