"Roper's third case features nicely depressive Oklahoma scenery, though the Native Americans are a bit too monotonously militant and the ending packs one twist too many."

BOOK REVIEW

McNALLY'S DILEMMA by Lawrence Sanders
Released: July 5, 1999

"If Lardo doesn't win any new friends for the franchise, he won't disappoint old hands either."
You'd have to be a sharper-eyed sleuth than foppish Archy McNally to find Vincent Lardo's name in tiny print on the copyright page, but Lardo, not the late Sanders, is the author of Archy's eighth adventure (McNally's Trial, 1995, etc.). Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

THE TANGENT FACTOR by Lawrence Sanders
Released: April 17, 1978

"But macho-zombie Tangent and his gross confederate, Sam Leiberman, set the tone for a vulgar and sluggish tourist trap that manages to make deepest West Africa look and sound like a corner in New York's garment district."
Even the most undiscriminating patrons of Sanders' fiction factory will find this sequel to The Tangent Objective (in which mercenary oil-man Peter Tangent helped Napoleonic Obiri Anokye to depose King Prempeh of Asante) shamelessly conveyor-belted and totally resistible. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

THE TIMOTHY FILES by Lawrence Sanders
Released: June 15, 1987

"Grossly synthetic and thoroughly unappealing: only for Sanders' most undiscriminating fans."
Three limp, unconnected episodes featuring Timothy Cone, "the Wall Street dick"—in an unusually sloppy, thoroughly hackneyed offering from an uneven, crass mass-producer (The Eighth Commandment, The Fourth Deadly Sin, The Passion of Molly T., etc.). Read full book review >
