    The real Richard Marder would shock his acquaintances, if they ever met him. Even his wife, long dead, didn’t know the real man behind the calm, cultured mask he presents to the world. Only an old army buddy from Vietnam, Patrick Skelly, knows what Marder is capable of. Then, a shattering piece of news awakens Marder’s buried desire for vengeance; with nothing left to lose, he sets off to punish the people whose actions changed his life years earlier.

    Alan says: "Outstanding"
    "A cauldron of phony machismo"

    Any additional comments?

    I'm a huge fan of Gruber's "Forgery of Venus." Read 2 other of his books that were ok. Couldn't get through much of this one, so I never really found out the plot. I kept waiting for some glint of humor or insight to penetrate the 2-D testosterone-laiden characters, finally gave up - one credit wasted!
