"Knief's writing is smooth and seamless, and he's concocted an involving plot to go with his likeable, attractive macho hero and exotic setting. The result: an action-packed, satisfying debut." -- Booklist on Diamond Head.
John Caine's adventure continues after the loss of his beloved houseboat in Hawaii. Caine's new client is in California, a wealthy widow (or is she?) who's referred to Caine when her husband vanishes. Caine's quest takes him to Mexico and puts him in the path of a dangerous female desperado. Fast-paced, heavy on action, a bit light on character development--this one's a winner, like the debut novel that preceded it.
