My fourth Goddard book. This one has a lot of the strengths typical of Goddard--fairly well written, compelling though flawed protagonist, intriguing setup--but the conspiracy at the heart of it is just too big and far-fetched; and much of the action is cliche cinematic. ( )

I found this book bogged me down with too much detail which tended to slow the book down. ( )

Set in the early part of the 20th century, mainly on a ship, it features two con artists who try to scam a fortune out of a beautiful young heiress. They soon find themselves way out of their depth, suddenly in the middle of events they don't understand, a typical Goddard scenario. ( )

My least favorite. Maybe I'll read it again. ( )

First Robert Goddard novel I've read. Set in the early part of the 20th century, it features two con artists who try to scam a fortune out of a beautiful young heiress. They soon find themselves way out of their depth, suddenly in the middle of events they don't understand.

A really well read thriller, a true page turner and interesting storyline. ( )
