This thriller starts out pretty well but gets tangled up in the many threads spun to weave a conspiracy. In the prologue, four people are murdered in four different citiesRome, Panama City, London and Gdansk. The victim in Rome, Tom Wellbeck, is the ex-husband of London Examiner reporter Caro Kilkenny, who investigates his death while researching a book on governmental corruption. Caro's research assistant is former newspaper colleague John Standing, now a broken-down boozer whose career was destroyed when he tried to expose the nefarious dealings of infernally rich power broker David Medina. In a series of confusing events that tie the four murders together, Caro, John and cub reporter Alan are led down a trail that connects the Vatican Bank to Americans trading guns for cocaine in Central America, to civil unrest in Poland, to what eventually seems to be every major event in recent headlinesand then back to David Medina. The book's background color rings true, particularly in the London newsroom and at Sandown racetrack, but Kabal stumbles badly when he switches the action to this side of the Atlantic; his descriptions of American cities might have been gleaned from a highway map.

In this labored work of intrigue, Kabal inflicts on us the most ordinary description of, for example, Seattle's architecture, Rome's restaurants, and London's newsrooms at the expense of character and plot development. As the widow of a murdered British journalist and her colleagues investigate the killing, they uncover an international plot of fund diversion and murder that reaches the highest levels of governments. The descriptions coupled with the novel's other elements never integrate into a novel of pace and substance like Anthony Hyde's The Red Fox . Such a mix serves only to blunt a work of some merit.
