A refrigerated meat truck is stopped by immigration officials at the Canadian border. Inside, slowly freezing to death, are a dozen desperate Salvadorian refugees. In the confusion that follows, two onlookersone the owner of an art gallery, the other a hard-drinking insurance salesmanimpulsively smuggle one of the aliens into Canada. From that moment on, all three find themselves in a Hitchcockian world of conspirators, informers, spies, and assassins. Borderline is both topical and timeless. Hospital's allusive prose examines the concept of sanctuary from the political and the psychological point of view simultaneously, yet never ignores the thriller format. Recommended for most fiction collections. (Hospital also wrote The Ivory Swing and The Tiger in the Tiger Pit. ) Edward B. St. John, Loyola Marymount Univ. Lib., Los Angeles
