Another positive review for "The Unsolvable Deathtrap"

Check out the latest review at Whispers of Wickedness.

My second favourite is The Unsolvable Deathtrap by Jack Mangan, a writer relatively unknown to many though if this story is a benchmark for his talent then he should go far. Describing the mundane and routine life of a taxi driver that is turned literally upside down, Mangan's prose is uncluttered and pared down to the bone, which makes for a thrilling story, spoilt only by the fact that the protagonist knows who Clint Eastwood is - the technology within seems to suggest a faraway future, yet the Man with No Name is still ever-present?

--(His favorite was Sundowner Sheila by F. Gwynplaine McIntyre)
