KIRKUS REVIEW

The connoisseur touches which have distinguished all of Mr. Dickinson's curious and curiouser stories are fully in evidence here on an island in Greece where James Pibble has been asked to come and protect the very rich and powerful Thanassi Thanatos. His attention and yours will turn from modern art to a monastery with two old whiskey priests or rather ouzo monks and the pharmacological particulars of processing opium into morphine. This is not, of course, for your eat-and-run habitue but for those who will enjoy all these divers and startling special effects.
