Suprasuspense this time, and Amsterdam's the scene of a nightwatch far darker than Rembrandt's as Major Sherman of Interpol and two of his young handmaidens, Maggie and Belinda, attempt to crack a narcotics ring. From his contact who is killed hideously in front of everyone on his KLM arrival, to the waiter on drugs who lurks in his room, to the girl - the daughter of Amsterdam's narcotics bureau chief - who can never be withdrawn from her habit, to a warehouse with puppets on chains and a barn where there's a scene as horrific as anything that happened at Auschwitz - Mr. MacLean clobbers the reader into another kind of insensibility. But he does so with the unhesitating assurance that he'll hold your interest and at that he might. (Kirkus Reviews)
From the acclaimed master of action and suspense. The all time classic. Paul Sherman of Interpol's Narcotics Bureau flies to Amsterdam on the trail of a dope king. With enormous skill the atmosphere is built up: Amsterdam with its canals and high houses; stolid police; psychopaths; women in distress and above all - murder.
