Yet another weak Brand novel. I think I will avoid him in the future. Again, Brand suggests some characters have special powers because they seem to know things that the plot has not suggested they should. The villain seems to have supernatural powers yet when Brand explains all this at the conclusion, the reader is not satisfied that it was all possible. If the villain had this supper knowledge that allowed him to know all and move people around as he saw fit, how was he so easily defeated in the end? Not a satisfactory read.

The plot? Blondy Graem sets out to take down gang leader La Salle who tried to have him killed. The search to reach La Salle leads Blondy through many adventures from which he miraculously escapes to the extent that La Salle's mentor suggests Blondy can't be defeated. Blondy's girl, Charlotte falls for La Salle and only returns to Blondy when she is told about La Salle's past, something she should have been aware of from her father. Another hole in the plot. brand never explains why Charlotte's little sister knew all about La Salle but was never able to make her sister aware. ( )
