What is it About?
Kurt Reid is a man of mystery and trouble love to find him. People want kill him, women want to consume him and he just wants to survive.
We find the protagonist, Kurt Reid, reflecting over his past. He is at a nightclub watching a beautiful woman from across the way. He starts up a conversation. That is his first mistake. This could cost his life. Now he running around Japan trying to find someone to trust.
I am not a big fan of pulp mystery but I figured this would be better then Hubbard’s Science Fiction. It was and it wasn’t. I found myself skimming a lot of description because it seemed like one page he was getting away from the girl or mob boss and the next chapter he wanted to find them. Every chapter was back and forth with such repetitiveness that I didn’t really care what happens to any of them.
Overall it is better than Hubbard’s sci fi but not better then the fantasy.
