Ben Garvold, a small-minded convict recently released from prison, is determined to collect the money stashed from his last crime. He's done the time. He's paid his dues. His wife and sister-in-law dread his release and ask for police protection. Detective Nick Miller, judo and karate expert, follows Garvold to learn where the stolen money is hidden. This 1960s police procedural never takes off. Even though characterizations are well done--British and Cockney accents are adeptly used to differentiate a variety of characters--the story remains flat. This is the first of three titles to be released in the United States. It's too bad the British didn't keep it. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 06/ JAN 07]
