KIRKUS REVIEW

 It's a jungle out there for Giles, a main-chance London Live reporter, whether he's facing down the sharks at work, disporting himself with Celeste, a femme fatale of twice his years and 20 times his experience, or relaxing in the frazzled bosom of his wife Denise, who's just about had it with Giles's bits on the side. And now that Harry, the deal-making husband whose absence opened Celeste's rapacious legs to her latest lover, has returned from his business trip, Giles is about to find out just how much of a jungle it really is--unless, of course, Harry and Celeste find out first. Spencer's second US publication (Quake City, p. 340) updates the noir tradition by expanding the cast of misfits but cutting back on the criminal fireworks, leaving nothing but threats of action that smolder till you're ready to scream.
