KIRKUS REVIEW

Sam Carson, electronics engineer, is shanghaied from his comfortably quiet existence at an experimental station at the South Pole by the NSA (National Security Agency). Sam is part Indian, hut that's just one of the reasons a farsighted computer has tagged him to replace an NSA agent, one who has been lost to the maneuverings of ""The Keyhole Club."" ""The Keyhole Club"" is actually a weird assortment of international blackmailers privy to the secrets of heads of state -- in fact, they may have gotten to our president. Sam, posing as an infinitely wealthy international big shot, must first do something to allow the club to get a crack at him. This leads to an NSA-sponsored African safari and a planned accident that could be construed as murder. Then there is a battery of confusing incidents that add up to the Key to the Keyhole. Slammin' Sam makes an interesting pretender but the plot is full of Handi-Wrap-Ups. Disposable.
