KIRKUS REVIEW

Far-fetched gangster yarn, suggesting a satire rather than a straight thriller. There's plenty of rip-roaring comedy stuff, recalling the old time comedies with chasing through crowded streets, etc. There are Americans run riot in London, all drawn a bit out of focus. There are successions of false alibis, near deaths et al.
