IZMIR by E. Howard Hunt
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Feb. 15, 1996

"Crude, chaotic, and puerile, with appeal mainly for those looking to step up in class from action comics."
A fourth globe-trotting turn for Jack Novak (Islamorada, p. 184, etc.), the ex-DEA operative who now does odd off-the-books jobs for agencies of the US government, damsels in distress, or anyone else who strikes his manic fancies. Read full book review >

MAZATLAN by E. Howard Hunt
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Dec. 10, 1993

"No doubt they will, since Hunt gives his readership the sort of leathery fare they presumably want: For would-be tough guys only, though."
Another awesomely un-politically correct thriller from Hunt (Chinese Red, 1992, etc.), this kicking off a new series narrated by an ex-DEA agent who knows his way around guns, booze, and boats- -and who will slap a ``bitch'' around if she gets out of line. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

THE PARIS EDGE by E. Howard Hunt
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Aug. 1, 1995

"Competently written pulp trash for the 90s, verging on self- parody most of the way."
In the latest from Hunt (Islamorada, Feb. 1995, etc.), ex-US secret agent Bradley Mason (``call me Mace'') now owns and runs Secours S.A. in Paris, with help from secretary Yasmi, henchmen Rene and Raoul, and a clutch of on-call aids. Read full book review >
