Well, I was right - 21st century pulp. Aloysius Pendergast is back in fine form - a cross between a fine southern gentleman, one of the Holmes brothers and Doc Savage. Also known as "That albino sonofabitch." The plot revolves around a mysterious artifact stolen from a secretive Tibetan monastary that ends up on a super passenger liner Brittania making its maiden voyage across the Atlantic. We wind up with a cast of characters and suspects and things rapidly going from tense to really bad.

All, in all, not too bad. Especially for a dollar at the local friends of the library book sale.
