Organized predators snatch children in this boisterous thriller.
Scarred of body and heavy of heart, legendary private eye Clayton Russell
retreated to his woodland compound in Georgia to sharpen his deadly
knife-throwing skills and forget the world’s cruelty with his brainy Airedale
Terrier, Winston. Then Pamela Waters, Clayton’s ex-partner and estranged lover, scolds him out of retirement to find a vanished sixth-grader.
Pam would help but her hands are full finding holy relics stolen from the Dalai Lama, who graciously offers a cameo, along with his pal Queen Elizabeth. All signs point to the girl’s abduction by child traffickers, and all clues lead to an Amsterdam-based criminal outfit called De Blauwe Organisation.
Clayton mobilizes his vast rolodex of mercenaries and miscellaneous cronies, including a madam with a heart of gold, to take down DBO. But he hasn’t factored in Fionna Marceau, DBO’s top “catcher,” who lures in children by dressing as a policewoman or a nun, and lures in men by parading around topless on yachts.
Gorgeous, amoral and wry, she’s a stealthy killing machine to rival Clayton himself...Clayton goes undercover as a recruit of the North American Man-Boy Love Association, and as a smarmy customer service rep delivering gear to a pedophile...Towers and Frazier keep their prose brisk, their characters colorful and their action scenes nimble, with plenty of henchmen for Clayton and Winston to maul in creative ways...
