KIRKUS REVIEW

L'homme ultimate sensuel, McGee (this is a 1965 reissue) decides to exact reparations for the death of his friend Sam, brutally killed at the moment of his reconciliation with his girl, Nora -- leaving behind him the evidence of one of those priceless pre-Columbian gold statuettes. The search for others in a collection belonging to a Cuban, now immobile and incommunicado in a wheelchair, takes them both to Mexico on a trail -- more straightforward than most McGee stories -- with a body count you can hardly add up. Not the best -- but full value in the series with that man at the height of his puissance.
