KIRKUS REVIEW

This is the fourth in the continuity featuring reflective Edmund Trothe with many references throughout to be retrieved from ""the coffined vaults of memory"" along with the fact that his wife and daughter have just been killed after the explosion of his home place, Banbury Cross. Trothe, after the shock passes, is on medication which seems to blur many of his activities here; in any case straight as the crow he does not fly in this new convergence of KGB and M.I., Russia, China and the Middle East, and another manifestation of the drug scene which his son is well into. There are very distracting archaisms throughout -- ""rose essence of soul sickness"" which will contribute to the vaporous effects which ""lazed my mind.
