Allbeury was a Lieutenant-Colonel in the Army Intelligence Corps. After the war he worked in sales, advertising and radio before publishing his first novel.From Booklist:
Fans of the great John D. MacDonald, lovers of he-man adventure stories, and those who pine for the days when political correctness was a blip on the horizon will doubtless enjoy Allbeury’s latest, a change of pace from his espionage fare. Max Farne, a partisan fighter in Italy during World War II, now divides his time between Italy and England and sells luxury yachts for a living. Then local hoodlum Carlo Lunghi asks for his help. Max smells a rat, especially when Carlo presents him with beautiful, young Gabriella Podonia. Gabby is the daughter of Max’s compatriot, Gianni Podoni, who served with Max in the war but then became a gangster and recently died a violent death. Now both Lunghi and his bitter rival Franceschi want to get their hands on Gianni’s substantial fortune, and they figure Gabby knows where it is. It’s up to Max to outwit the two gangsters, keep Gabby safe, and discover where the treasure is stashed. Hair-raising suspense, brutal violence, steamy sex, and high-octane action keep the plot racing along. --Emily Melton
