Signet misclassifies the Tanner series books as mysteries, hoping to take advantage of Block's unblemished reputation as an exceptional mystery writer. The Tanner books aren't mysteries. Rather, they are humorous spy/espionage/adventure novels set in the late 1960s. They are wonderful books, and I highly recommend this and the others in the series. But just don't expect a mystery, despite what the cover tells you.

A FOOL'S MISSION
Edgar Award-winning author Lawrence Block delivers the second suspenseful romp featuring one of his most popular characters: Evan Tanner. With a shocking array of talents and no need to sleep, Tanner poses as the perfect secret agent--to treat a Nazi war criminal to an early withdrawal...

Janos Kotacek has been imprisoned by the Czech government and will no doubt be tried and hanged for his crimes. But to the super-secret intelligence agency that Tanner occasionally works for, Kotacek is worth mre alive than dead. Tanner's orders are simple: go to Prague...storm a castle...free a criminal. That, of course, is the easy part. Keeping himself and his captive alive will take all of Tanner's waking hours. Good thing he's got some to spare.

"One of the better storytellers around in any genre." --Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

Lawrence Block brings back Evan Tanner, the spy who can't sleep. One of my favorite characters.
