Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Released in 1966 and 1970, respectively, these are Thomas's signature espionage thrillers. Set in Germany, The Cold War Snap follows friends Mike Padillo and Mac McCorkle, a spy and a saloon owner by trade. When Mike's assignment to bring back defectors goes awry, Mac comes to his aid. The Fools moves to the American South, where protagonist Lucifer Dye puts together a team, including a corrupt police chief, an ex-call girl, and a handful of other nasties, to wreak havoc in a small town. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
