Andrew Raikes, the conscienceless survivor of many aliases and frauds, has reached his objective - some 300,000 pounds and the perpetuation of his real name via Mary Warburton. When a man called Sarling who collects people and uses them tries to force him to pull off one more deal (gold bullion on the Queen Elizabeth II), Raikes kills for the first time in cold blood but life and death's little ironies continue - the woman he wants cannot have a child and the one he conspires with is pregnant. Raikes has no final option and you won't be sorry to see him go but Mr. Canning has again provided an implacably effective entertainment. (Kirkus Reviews)
