Library Journal - Library Journal
Offered the chance to buy secrets from certain Chinese officials wishing to raise venture capital, the CIA's Hong Kong station chief, Ella Nidech, thrills to the opportunities now open to a well-trained, ambitious intelligence agent. Her elaborate plan of operation almost fails, however, when a James Bond-type villain kidnaps a man central to its success. Needless to say, Nidech mounts an immediate offensive that results in adventure and violencecomplete with private islands, deadly kung fu, and fighter helicopters. Author Hoyt ( Trotsky's Run ) assembles appropriate espionage elements here, but he fumbles them together and adds unsatisfactory bits of romance, caricature, and vulgarity. Marionette characters chirrup and jerk throughout the fragmented plot. A no suspense and no finesse effort for die-hard Hoyt fans only. Rex E. Klett, Anson Cty. Lib., Wadesboro, N.C.
