Format: Hardcover
Evan Tanner is the spy who never sleeps. His sleep center was destroyed by shrapnel during the Korean War, and he has been productively awake ever since - except for the twenty-five years he was frozen by a jealous coworker. This novel finds him searching for the missing ruler of a new African nation. He has escaped into a remote part of his nation with millions from the treasury and is accompanied by an undercover agent from Tanner's covert group.

The part of the country he must go to is controlled by a rebel group led by a white woman known as Sheena the Jungle Girl. Her origins are unknown, but what is known is that she is ruthless and that no one returns from the area she controls.

On this adventure Tanner picks up a 15-year-old native girl who either accompanies him or dies. She is constantly attempting to seduce him, since she is considered old by her tribe. The number of dysfunctional elements in this novel will keep the reader reeling. You'll uncover missionaries who are not as virtuous as they should have been. A young girl misinterprets what she sees as love in action - and uses love and power to conquer and kill for no other reason than to temporarily quiet her demons. Tanner also discovers allies who are not quite whom they seem to be - and who turn out at various stages to really be enemies.

Armchair Interviews says: You will be thoroughly entertained by this book-as long as you can take it for the tongue-in-cheek novel it was meant to be.

Format: Kindle Edition
Book seven of the ETASHS (Evan Tanner Alternative Super Hero Series) opens with arguably the most enlightening and fun set of two chapters of the series. A sequence of jokes (from the author), and guffaws (from the reader), are followed by getting reacquainted with the star of the series so far, little Minna. By the start of chapter three, Evan Tanner has been buried alive, and left for (*ahem*) dead by his friends and associates. So how on earth could you stop reading at this point? Of course the answer is you can’t. And so you don’t.

Tanner is sent to deepest, darkest Africa (Mondonoland) in order to save a fellow undercover operative (a Mr Bowman) as well as the out of control Ruler of Mondonoland, Knanda Ndoro. Being the ruler of a country, he is bound to be rich. In fact, he is very rich. Very, very, very rich.

Anyway, back to the story. The pair need to be saved from a “Stunningly Beautiful Native Girl” who endured her own less than wholesome upbringing for one reason or another. The trouble is, said “Stunningly Beautiful Native Girl” has formed her own personal army of dedicated and blood thirsty killers who are more than happy to carry out her orders.

Time halts for no man, woman, or child. Little Minna is little Minna for now, but not for long. A New York associate of Tanner has brought this little fact to his attention, and in the midst of enjoying a little Vodka in deepest, darkest Africa, Tanner has an epiphany, and realises why he was so keen to get out of New York.

New characters to the series are introduced, the main one being a fourteen year old African girl who helps Tanner to escape his early death at the start of the book, and sticks around to the end. Or does she? She is delightful.

Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
This particular book is just offensive. The main character, Evan Turner, gets an assignment to go to a fictional African nation. In his adventures, he, of course, beds another nymphomanic, hot for his secret agent body. The only problem: Turner enjoys a little pedophilia in that part. Part of his work is to eliminate a beautiful white terrorist nymphomaniac running around the jungles in Africa. Right.

Too many of the passages in the book, through the eyes of any person today, forty years later, would be seen as just plain racist, homophobic, pedophilic and misogynistic. This book just isn't funny, like the other Evan Tanner novels. It does not hold together, and it doesn't make any sense. Sometimes, Block's books can sag a little and then pick up. This one goes for the cellar and never comes up.

I love almost all the books by Lawrence Block. This one should stay unbought.
