Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

A not-particularly-inventive plot commences with the murder of an American pilot in the fictional country of Luong (bordering Laos, Burma, and Thailand). Denny McCloud runs the Luong Express until someone tortures him, stabs him to death, and ransacks his plane. Motive becomes apparent to Superintendent of Police Basman Kiet after the autopsy reveals that McCloud swallowed four Burmese pigeon blood rubies. Working slowly, Kiet eventually accumulates enough evidence to tie in a cruel and greedy lieutenant colonel and the leader of the Luongan communists. Light, unspectacular.REK
