KIRKUS REVIEW

A beefy, all male action story which sweats a lot taking place in Malaverde, South America, ""a boil on the earth's backside."" A new Chairman-Premier-Liberador of the People's Republic takes over the country and a U.S. oil company, tries and summarily executes the son of the company's owner, and thereby sets in motion this ""exercise in revenge"" -- namely bombing the refinery. Wolfram, whose conscience was ""amputated,"" hires foreign (a Japanese) as well as local help and right on time all that black gold goes up in black smoke. Mr. Graves is a demolition expert and it shows; he's not much of a writer and it also shows but it probably will do all right in paper or appear later as an entertainment for the hardhatted tooboisie.
