As a humorous aside, I love the idea of FBI agents and US marshalls driving around Port Angeles WA in the summer of 1981 looking for him, openly drinking cans of beer as they drive around town. Federal law enforcement officials drinking AND driving simultaneously on a national manhunt. How times have changed. Did you have to drink from an open container as you drove around Port Angeles in 1981 in order to maintain your cover as a federal agent?
There is just so much goin' on here! This is a stand out piece of literature. Firstly; Boyce and his jackass buddy -from comfortable/privileged homes- risk their future with amateurish espionage...get nailed thru gross stupidity and sentenced to an eternity in the can. Against almost immeasurable odds; Boyce escapes...and does as he pleases for 18mnths or so ..including numerous banks..wow!!.Then...equally as unbelievable...he "talks too much to the wrong company"...wow again...next thing the benighted big heat rolls up and he's back in the can til retirement age.Do ya' think he hates himself now??? Apparently Boyce and Lindsey are not best buddies after this scribe...to be fair...it does make Chris look pretty stupid and careless with his liberty...which as a very clever loner...was one of his most valued treasures. An extraordinary tale!!!
I couldn't put it down either. I literally read it all in one sitting---staying up all night.
It must be some kind of masterpiece of the genre. Hell of an achievement for a sequel (to The Falcon and the Snowman, which I read afterward at a normal pace).
(Oddly enough, reading up on Boyce lately I don't find him an interesting or compelling figure in himself. He used to remind me a bit of Christopher McCandless.)
