Whittington is considered by some critics the king of the paperback original, but this book is an odd jumble. We have an interesting and psychologically complex protagonist, but all the female characters are cartoons- the plot is implausible, but Whittington does not take advantage of the opportunities for imaginative set-pieces that loose plotting provides.

Nevertheless, there are effective moments, the prevailing tone of over-the-top emotionality is interesting, and Whittington gives us at least one memorable supporting character, the vengeance-driven, sadistic, and deeply hurt Honolulu police lieutenant, Albert Mosani, a sort of anti-Charlie Chan.
