The opening tupperware party is worth the price of the book alone. It's fun all the way, with enough wise-cracking dialogue, rapid action, car chases, gunfire, and double-dealing to satisfy any fan of the early gangster films, yet it's a lively, tongue-in-cheek comedy from start to finish.

But the overall effect is fantastic fub. The entire book covers less than a 12 hour period and read In the introduction of this book, McBain explains that his book was written to meet a deadline. Great news: I have a bunch of comics lined up that I'm really looking forward to reading, so I'll be flooding your feeds with them for the next few days.
