CAVE OF BATS by Robert MacLeod


Email this review


Southeast Asia has had its journalists, businessmen and diplomats turn spy/detective but Talos Cord comes as a man of peace -- he's a U.N. arbitrator and he's in Burma to stick his finger in a modern dike. A U.N. dam project is threatened and it's Cord's assignment to trace the treachery that's holding up the water works among Red Chinese agents, native tribesmen and disaffected diplomatic personnel. He makes talktalk all over the place and is supplied with the obligatory romance. Readers not thoroughly exhausted by the news from this part of the world will find a talk-into-action thriller paced for an evening's escape.
