He achieves both great sales and critical acclaim: 'McBain is a perennial cause for rejoicing' The Times. 'McBain throws in switchback plot twists and false leads like the consummate pro he is and ALICE IN JEOPARDY is a terrific page-turner' Tribune. 'McBain, the old pro, cranks up the tension to breaking point ... One can only sit back and admire' Irish Times. 'He's unbeatable ... Keep 'em coming, Ed' Independent on Sunday. 'McBain back on zestful, inventive and utterly compulsive form ... so topical that it practically sprints from the page' Literary Review. '[McBain] continues to pour out brilliant stuff ... McBain's genius lies in his uncanny dialogue, his intelligent characters, clever plots and the way he can portray the human side of law agency procedures' Guardian. 'He's right at the top of the premier league of crime fiction' Mirror.
