In this ambitious and impressive first novel, Folsom covers vast amounts of territory at breakneck speed. In Paris, an American stalks his father's murderer. In Great Britain, detectives are puzzled by a series of headless corpses that have been frozen to absolute zero. In New Mexico, a recovering stroke victim prepares to return home to Switzerland. In Berlin, a powerful, secret organization with operatives in all corners of the world shows a penchant for killing at the slightest provocation. To this, Folsom adds romance, travelog, and even elements from that old matinee thriller, They Saved Hitler's Brain! (oops, does that give it away?). That Folsom manages to instill some genuine tension amidst all this is testimony to his skill. For popular collections.-- Rebecca House Stankowski, Purdue Univ. Lib., Hammond, Ind.

YA‘Paul Osborn, an orthopedic surgeon from Los Angeles, looks up from his table in a Paris cafe and sees the face of the man who murdered his father 30 years earlier. At the same time as he is pursuing the killer, the London police have a series of decaptitated corpses on their hands; Osborn falls in love with the French Prime Minister's mistress; and a German industrialist is recuperating from a stroke in a private sanatorium in Arizona. All of these disparate elements come together nicely in the end. YAs who enjoy a sprawling plot involving Nazis, chases across Europe, and lots of unexpected twists and turns will love this fast-paced thriller.‘Susan B. McFaden, Fairfax County Public Library, Fairfax, VA
