About the Author:

Desmond Bagley was born in 1923, in Kendal, a rural town in England's scenic Lake District. He left school aged fourteen and worked for a number of years in the aircraft industry before embarking on an adventure - travelling to South Africa by road and supporting himself along the way by working in gold and asbestos mines. Bagley spent the Fifties in South Africa, working as a freelance journalist and critic, before moving to Italy with his wife, Margaret, and then to Guernsey. His first novel, The Golden Keel, was based on a true story overheard by Bagley in a bar in Johannesburg, about Mussolini's vast personal riches and the men who went looking for it. It was published in 1963 to great acclaim and followed by a further fifteen popular adventure ovels. Bgley's career spanned two decades and his influence can be seen in the work of several highly respected thriller writers. When he died, in 1983, his final novel, Juggernaut, was completed by his wife.

Review:

This is one of Desmond Bagley's 108% action stories which tracks across a lot of territory (England, Ireland, Gibraltar) after Rearden, or the man called Rearden, who is hired by Mackintosh to lift some diamonds which will send him to jail where he can interest a circuit of escape artists called the Scarperers. In their hands he finds the confinement closer than the "nick," until he gets away and with Macintosh's daughter shuttles and shoots his way clear in an operation which has a much higher political ceiling. Breathe deeply and start counting - it's natty, peremptory stuff. (Kirkus Reviews)
