About this title


Members of the Adventurers Club, a group of east-coast millionaires, challenge New York City's underworld by announcing their intention to individually travel a prescribed route, on foot or by public transportation, while carrying a fortune in cash and bearer bonds

From Publishers Weekly:

In the course of his duties, foreign service officer William Adams becomes embroiled in the activities of the Adventurers Club. The members are multimillionaire New Yorkers who not only finance but also indulge in perilous escapades for thrills. Since the State Department has had to proscribe some of their more risky projects, Adams suggests to the frustrated Adventurers a new, daring gambol: each of them will take a turn carrying hundreds of thousands of dollars through Manhattan over a designated route, which the general public (and the underworld) will know in advance. This is a variation of the Tiger Game, in which a live goat is staked to attract the vicious tiger. On the first run, the Club is down two adventurers, each having shot the other; Adams suspects murder. Knight struggles to vivify his plot, but his lackluster prose is like a dead weight, submerging the reader in ennui.

Wonder Book and Video has been in business since 1980 and online since 1997. We have over 1 Million books for sale on our website and another 1 Million books for sale in our 3 locations. We have a very active online inventory and as such, we can receive multiple orders for the same item. We fill those orders on a first come first serve basis, but will refund promptly any items that are out of stock. Since 1980 it has always been about the books. ALL kinds of books from 95 cent children's paperbacks to five figure rare and collectibles. A merging of the old and new is where we started, and it is where we are today. Our retail stores have always been places where a reader can rush in looking for a title needed for a term paper that is due the next day, or where bibliophiles can get lost "in the stacks" for as long as they wish. In 2002 USAToday recognized us as "1 of 10 Great Old Bookstores", and we have been featured in numerous other newspaper and TV stories including Washington Post and CSpan. Members ABAA, ILAB.
