Good thriller with an undertone of dark humor -- our protagonist is in the tub, gun in mouth, about to commit suicide, when the phone rings. Not wanting to leave any details unattended, he answers it...

Soon this retired obituary writer finds himself accused of murder and on the run with (natch) a beautiful woman... does he trust her, should he trust her...

The fact that the romance comes about a little too quickly IMO, it is but a minor flaw in a rip-roaring adventure...

"Nobody delivers suspense fiction with more sheer emotional power than Morrell." I gave it four stars, and search for more novels by Mr Morrell.
