Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Daniel ( Ark ) launches this gripping political thriller with a double murder on Martha's Vineyard, Mass. Because both victims worked for the senatorial reelection campaign of Tim Murphy, a presidential hopeful, island policeman Eric Thorne seeks background information from Lorraine Patton, who had written a book about the candidate, a Vietnam hero. He asks Patton about a photograph taken by one of the victims showing Murphy and a woman, a photo also of interest to aides of the vice-president, himself in the running for the top job. After a third murder, Thorne is taken off the case and fired. Pursuing the crimes on his own, he is warned off by an FBI agent, shot at and his car fire-bombed. Tracing the registration of a plane that had landed on Martha's Vineyard on the day of the murders, Thorne and Patton are led to mysterious dealings on a Caribbean island. Also in the Bahamas is a DEA agent from Miami, who is searching for the origins of a huge gun shipment to the U.S. How his sleuthing ties in with Murphy and the woman in the photograph is revealed in a series of incendiary, startling scenes. The truth about the senator's past is hard to swallow, however, a flaw that diminishes the otherwise potent suspense. (July)
Library Journal
When a presidential candidate is photographed dining with an unidentified woman in Martha's Vineyard, a web of political drama, drugs, and deception flies apart in a crescendo of meaningless deaths. Resoundingly underscoring the simple virtues of persistence and trust, a young couple redeems the vicious mess in a tale that makes Daniel an author to watch. His earlier novel, Ark ( LJ 1/85), was well received. What sets this new work apart is a series of vignettes and cameos linked by sympathetic character development of the two young sleuths. Functioning as a mystery as much as a political thriller, this story is peppered with word portraits that are so vivid and succinct they are like stop-action film bits. Anyone who enjoys the gritty exuberance of real politics and the precision of police procedurals will enjoy Tuesday Man.--Barbara Conaty, Library of Congress
