KIRKUS REVIEW

Bennett hits us right off with some unlikely dialogue in which straight-arrow NYU student Fred Morgan contemptuously confronts his father with the news that he, Fred, has become the target of a hit man. This is no Godfather; the gangsterland context is menacing but vague and Fred might as well be the son of a high school English teacher. Still, Fred is never more than one jump away from another, unexpected threat to his life, and if the aim is to provide gut-level adult suspense in a relatively clean-cut context then Bennett is on target this time out.
